So when I plug my headset in it gives the option to use line in headphones or microphone when I use microphone the speaker part of my headset becomes a mic and not the built in mic. If I set it to headphones I can hear my computer audio through headset but mic still doesn't work. Using Windows 10

Your headset seem to have a single 3.5mm jack, which makes it useful for laptops, consoles and notebooks. Desktop computers on the other hand usually have separate connectors for headphone and microphone, so you would need a splitter like this.
