I have a Catnip plant and it has gotten flower blooms. Now I see flies all over the blooms. Thought this plant repells.

Catnip does repel many species of flies, but it is also an insect-pollinated plant and does attract some insect species. The fact that the bugs you see are attracted to the blooms suggests they are most likely pollinators and harmless to your garden.
