Ever since I got my new computer running, this little icon has been in the taskbar on the bottom right. It says I can safely remove my hard drive, and as you can guess, I dont want to do that. Any idea how I can get it to go away?

The "Safely remove hardware" system tray icon is normally only present when a USB attached storage device or a device bay device is connected to the system. It does not normally show internal hard drives.

To hide the icon see:

Well I know it's not a usb drive. When I open it it says C: next to the object I can remove. I also would rather just get rid of it than hide it. I imagine that it is a process that is running that I can end. Any ideas?

It's probably for a sata drive which can be connected or disconnected hot.
Just remove the icon in the task bar if it bothers you.
