I just have 1 more week to show my project. I am feeling helpless.Do help me out.

Do not use Overpass. Download an .osm.pbf file covering your region of interest, then use osm2pgsql or osm2pgrouting to import your data into PostGIS or PostgreSQL. Then you can access the data in your database.

Be advised that this will only allow you to build a very basic routing engine "proof of concept". Writing a good routing engine is far, far more complex than can be solved in a one-week student project.
