I don't know if I am doing something wrong or what....

when I am picking... along with the note I am playing, I can hear myself picking the string through the amp... which almost sounds like a ticking in the background for faster parts....

am I doing something wrong?
and what can I do to prevent this.

its the sound of the pick hitting the string dont worry there is nothing you can do about it
except from turn the volume on the amp up

yeah, you're probably just hearing the actual percussive tone from the pick hitting the string

when playing on a low-medium volume amp, its very common, especially if you pick hard

yeah some artists actually like it, listen to Serj Tankiens solo project, you can hear it it some of his songs. I think you can hear it in Empty walls actually

you could try not digging your pick into the strings so much
that might make it a big quieter (not saying you dig it in though)
