No, dropping is before the last date for financial penalty, usually two weeks into term. After that and until the last date to drop without academic penalty (this year it's Mar15), it's called "cancelling" and that's when it shows up on your transcript as cancelled.
After that date, if you drop the course then you fail it.
I'm not sure if it shows "cancelled" AND "F", or if it just has the "F".
