My gnome terminal syntax highlight has gone 17.10

by Hemakshi Sachdev   Last Updated January 17, 2018 14:02 PM

When I opened my home directory the other day. I found a lot of files/folders which I did not remember creating. And mistakenly deleted them. After that a lot things disappeared in some of my software like Atom (all the installed packages got deleted.) & git SSH keys also got deleted[enter image description here][1]. Also, syntax highlight of my terminal also disappeared. I get only white text whether it is any command or the current folder in which I am. I tried to change the settings but all text color changes. I want the default settings.

My terminal when I use system settings :-

1

When I use custom settings all the text in the terminal changes to that particular color. Please help!!

Edit - Output of command ls -la as requested in the comments -
