I have a bass line and I am trying to write a guitar part to go along with it.

The notes used are:

D A C D A#/Bb C A A#/Bb

This doesn't fall into me knowledge of figuring it out, if the #s are accidentals this could be in the key of C. But if not, I figured it could also be in the key of E (right?)

How would I best find out some chords to put over the top of this line? It's pretty rapid so just using those root notes as the basis of the chord isn't going to work in this situation, any insight someone with more knowledge of theory would be greatly appreciated.

I also think Dm is your best choice. It could be C7 (Bb is lowered 7th) but its definately not in E.

Definitely D minor. It would be F major only if it sounded more "major-ly" but the melody is definitely minor.

No, D Locrian has an Eb and an Ab. Not diatonically fit for D minor. Ab can be used for blues licks, though.
