This is probably an extremely basic and simple question, however, while working in Illustrator I noticed that while trying to use the brush tool, instead of drawing a simple line, it's using the Leather Seam pattern? I'm extremely new to Illustrator, as in this is the first time I've opened it, but I tried to find how to rid of it, but nothing seems to show up. Sorry for asking what is probably a ridiculous question, but it's really frustrating. Here's a screenshot of what is happening, if that helps.

The answer is probably to select another brush from the brushes panel.

Every time I select another brush, it just goes to that brush when I start drawing with it.

That "other brush" you are selecting is not the "Basic" brush?

The brush tool won't draw with the basic brush, because the basic brush is not a brush at all.

 

If you want to draw just a simple line, use the pencil tool.
