The E is a particular note that can be overblown easily, but you will get a better tone if you pinch the thumb hole. For the higher notes, it is more important to pinch the hole correctly - for the highest ones it is virtually impossible to play the note unless it is pinched correctly.

The F is a different matter. The fingering T 123 4--- will produce a completely different pitch from T 123 4-67. If you can't hear the difference between these two notes, then it is likely that your sense of pitch is not well enough developed to be able to play or enjoy good music. There are basic musicianship classes which will serve to improve your sense of pitch. You could join a choir and ask the choir master for special lessons in singing in tune.
