    I am trying to Extrude and object but it keeps on saying "Cannot sweep or extrude a self-intersecting curve".

    Self intersecting usually means its overlapping somewhere or your tappered extrude hits a zero

    What type of extrude are you using?

    Post a screenshot of the base object and path so we can better see what its doing?

    That is most likely the shape of your 2d object. go through it with a fine tooth comb and make sure none of your lines overlap.
