I am trying to recreate my floor in my house from a picture I took and using an image texture.

I am having a sort white-washed texture effect happening. Does anyone know what's going on? The comparison of the two shows my floor image on top and the Node setup.

The white spot in your render is just a reflection of your Point light.
To make it also visible in the Viewport, you have to enable your Scene Lights.

Additional note.
You seem a bit confused about using the Bump node.

If you're using it with a color image, add a color ramp to make it BW and to control the contrast.
There's no need for a Displacement node.
