How to delete the selection without getting that gradient effect?

I am using the rectangle marquee tool. I also apply a feather of 25 pixels to get rounded corners then I select inverse.

If you need a rounded rectangle, use the Rounded Rectangle Tool, with settings for corner radius, fill, etc: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/how-to/edit-rounded-rectangles.html
