Is 301 redirecting to the same page bad for SEO?

I want to thank you in advance for taking the time to answer my question.

I have this page and I'm making 301 redirect to this page[]=bmw#showresult

So it’s exactly the same page but with query function.

From my understanding, you can't make web page URL with query function built in. So the only solution I could think of was the 301 redirect. I would appreciate if there's any other solution to to this particular problem.

Is there going to be any rank issues or SEO penalties for doing this?

If so,what and how much?

Is there going to be an issue with Adsense?

Or monetizing this page?

Anything else I should keep in mind?

I’ve read a lot of articles about this subject but all of them talk about redirecting to another page. Just want to make sure I have a firm understanding and know what to expect.

Thank again,

You have a canonical tag set to which redirects to another location (with your query string). Google will try to index your canonical URL.. which is a 301 redirect (not ideal). Instead, I’d generate the query string via javascript when the page loads. OR, make your canonical URL the one that you redirect to. This would only affect SEO, not adsense/monetization/etc.
