Mirror creates new sketch lines (or bodies) to the other side of the mirror line, while symmerty just makes the already existing shapes symmertic to the centerline.
If you want to draw only the half of your symmetric model, then make it as a whole, you should use mirror.
If you want to draw the whole profile of your symmetric model, create a center line, use symmetry command and then you have to put dimensions only on the half of the sketch.
