What pieces of land will be the first and the last to drawn because of the current temperature rise causing the ice in the northern antarctic and so on and so forth to melt. it is reported that the temperature will rise globally about 2 degrees, this is a serious issue because in the ice age the temperature was only -4. please correct me if i am wrong.

The following map will answer your questions and show all answers in between.
If all the ice covering Antarctica, Greenland, and in mountain glaciers around the world were to melt, sea level would rise about 70 meters (230 feet). The ocean would cover all the coastal cities. And land area would shrink significantly. But many cities, such as Denver, would survive. https://www.amnh.org/explore/ology/earth/ask-a-scientist-about-our-environment/will-the-world-ever-be-all-under-water
We don't know.
And that is part of what makes this scary. A slight rise in temperature might cause glaciers to break off and slide into the oceans, make other glaciers shrink, change the albedo of Earth, and lead to even more changes.
Regarding the first land to vanish, there will be some of that at every coastline which isn't a straight cliff. Some countries have dikes to keep the oceans out. If they are wealthy enough they can build them higher. Those who can't afford dikes will flood.
Regarding the last land to vanish, you can be confident that there will be plenty of land sticking out. The movie Waterworld got it quite wrong.
On a global scale mankind could handle the loss of living and farming areas without many problems. Eating less meat would be healthier and reduce food consumption (a pig or cow needs lots of animal feed to produce meat). And people don't need hundreds of square feet of living space, either.
But it would be hard on the people who live in low-lying areas.
