What to do if I have a warrant for first degree home invasion and assault with attempt to cause great bodily harm?

However, the thing is both of these charges are not suitable for what my actions were. The person who lived at the house let me and the other person in and then the other person started attacking the victim, I stood over him yelling at him. I was wondering what course of action should I take?

Look, you need to call an attorney as soon as you can.  Regardless of whether or not you think that the charges are "suitable" you were charged with them.  The evidence at least supported the charges enough to arrest you for them.  If they will stick is another story but only an attorney can tell you.
