I have two children one NT and one diagnosed Autism, I want a third child but worried about a possible third with autism. Help 😢

No one can tell you if a third child would have autism - the fact that one of your children already has autism increases the probability of future children also having autism. If you are unable to accept this increased risk then surely the best advice would be to not have any more children.
