Heck is what's called a "minced oath", where you avoid actually swearing by saying a word that sounds similar to them. Other examples of this are darn, cripes, jeepers.

Heck itself is usually a replacement for "hell" by either those wishing not to swear or not to use the true word in case it offends, hurts or scares those around them.

"Heck" is a euphemism used to express frustration, surprise, or disbelief. It is a milder alternative to stronger profanities and is often used in casual conversation.
