Am i suppost to claim myself as a dependant on my return

No, you never claim yourself as a dependent. You will get a personal exemption for yourself. TurboTax does that automatically. You don't have to enter anything to get it. The value of the personal exemption is the same as claiming a dependent. If someone else can claim you as a dependent, you do not get a personal exemption for yourself.
