I have my discone outdoor antenna on a metal pole about 32ft in the air and its grounded. I have a big uhf/vhf tv antenna under my discone antenna. would that affect the receive on the discone antenna ? Thank You.

Generally speaking it depends upon the amount of separation between antennas, in conjunction with the target receive freq.
For VHF non interaction between antennas - about 19". UHF/800 less. VHF lowband much more...

If it looks like the one in your user name photo (with 3 disk and 3 cone elements), I had one of those and it was terrible compared to Diamond and Icom discones, which have more elements, that I have had.
