You must have the same data types for all arguments of Coalesce.  

Your underlying field value (Parent.Default) is most likely by looking at the picture, a choice column.

In that case Parent.Default will be a record.  Therefore Coalescing it with text will not be value, you must Coalesce with another record.

Coalesce(Parent.Default, {Value:"Draft"})

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
