I have begun benching on the smith machine in school. I know it's not meant to be ideal but I can't afford gym membership and I don't have heavy weights at home.

Anyway the bar is not completely horizontal. It tilts to the right so one part is higher than another. Does this mean that one side of my pecs will be worked more or is it fine?

Do you mean there is a tilt? So the bar path is slanted
(often 7 degrees or so). It's not optimal, but it's not
going to kill you. I bench on a smith machine, I haven't
lost any strength really.
