Hi ! Pleasure to meet you.  If you go in the Forum section, in the Beginner forum, there are articles about being new to your path and the need for discretion.

I would ask if you live under your parents roof or if you have your own place? Unfortunately until you do live on your own you really don't have much choice but to abide by their rules.  If they don't support your religious choices then there really isn't much anyone can do about that. Tell them you are just learning about it for now, that's all.

Also there are many different non-specific things you can learn about that will apply down the line. . Learn about the natural world such as weather patterns. the local plant life and animal behavior. Learn about archaeology and history as they also play a role. Learn to meditate. That's a biggie. Learn dream interpretation as many things can be figured out through those. Adding a variety of religions to your studies will also help in the long run. Starting all these things now will give you an advantage when you are able to practice.

As for Wicca specifically, if you are not allowed to practice just now, taking time to just learn for the moment is a good idea. There is a lot to figure out and decide before actually practicing anyway, such as if it is really what you think it is since you are still so new. Learn about other pagan religions, spiritualities and lifestyles as there are a vast array of them.

Most of all take your time. This isn't something you jump right into anyway. Making sure you get a good base of knowledge together is important too.

There is plenty to do, but learning is probably the biggest like already mentioned. There is so much to learn! Plenty of magick paths to learn about and choose from, and work into your own personal practice.
Meditation like mentioned, but also visualization of good things. You can also do anything without tools, all you need is you.
Daily/weekly things - Cleaning the house/room can also be a cleansing practice and bring in many good things, and no one has to know. Baths, cooking. Even if your parents have a different faith that they practice you might be able to find things to relate to/compare to what you actually care about and value.
Hobbies you already do can have magick worked into them, or you can pick up a new hobby once the air has cleared and they don't think you're doing something 'weird'.
I think everything depends on the level of security you need to keep, which I know all to well. If you have a good standing with your parents and they don't snoop through your room and such, you can get away with more than you could in very strict households. It's important to know what you can and can't get away with. If you start randomly buying incense or scented candles, would that be too weird for them? Or would it be okay, if you only did it once in a while? What about crystals, would they be for or against that? Essential oils? (even just scented bath ad body products). Enchant things you already have, like jewelry or school items.
What about your day to day? How does nature and the weather affect you? Many people turn to magick because nature is so heavily involved, and if that matters to you theres always deeper to go, in yourself and with the connection and understanding of the natural world. If sitting outside and meditating would be weird to them, when the sun comes out is it ok to tan/sunbathe once in a while? Boom, magick.
This could be a great time to learn and really figure out your magick and even your faith if thats something in your life or you care about. Journaling is very important IMO.
Read the books found on this site. Simply searching Youtube reviews of beginner witch books could help you find ones you'd like to start with. In general YouTube might be a good place to get the same info in a condensed version. Reading a chapter probably takes longer than watching a video. But you should read anything that interests you, always. Something I took away from Scott Cunningham was simply You do you! Truly.
