That's 2 reps. Every time to bar goes above your head, count a rep.

Doing it this way is fine, but eventually you will find that you might be stronger pressing behind the neck. And without using a cage, the weight might become unruly, so over time you might need to sit to do these.

I would stick with what you're doing as long as you're progressing in weight. But if you start to notice that one of the pressing movements is failing while the other feels strong, then I would make a change.
