I went to empty my trash an hour ago and nothing was actually trashed or deleted. Yet it still makes all the trash bin noises as if being trashed.

It said error code -50, which I know is a user parameter error. After messing around, I also noticed that I cannot drag files from my trash to my desktop and vice versa. So odd. Actually, I cannot move anything to my desktop. I tried to change my desktop background image, but the picture stays the same, nothing is happening.

I have no idea what to do and any help would be greatly appreciated.

You should try the standard troubleshooting suggestions:
http://www.apple.com/support/mac101/ (see the "My Mac needs help" section)
http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=2004011205473937
http://forums.osxfaq.com/viewtopic.php?t=7269
http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/faqs.html

In particular, be sure to try logging in as a different user to see if the problem exists there. (Create a new user via the Accounts preference panel if you only have the one user account so far.)

And if you need more help, please be sure to tell us what model of Mac you have and what version of OS X you are running.

Also be sure to do both permission repair and filesystem repair.
