I was given a task to add a few textbox by a senior which she only gave me a few files from Project A. The few files provided by the senior was not enough to compile on its own. I check with the senior to help me and she told me to check again and tried to integrate the files from Project B which I have from one of my previous tasks. I did that but I failed to compile as there were complications so it didn't work. So I keep trying whatever possible method to solve it. Sadly I failed to integrate and compile.
Later, the senior decided to step in as I did not make any progress to work on the task of adding the textbox as I failed to compile. She has tried the methods that she told me to until she manage to solve the compilation issue by integrating it. I was glad that she manage to solve the compilation issue. After that, I continue on my task of adding the textbox.
After I manage to complete the task, we had a skype call and the manager was not happy with the progress. Later that day, the manager email me saying that it is not the senior task to help solve the compilation issue.
Is it wrong to ask the senior for help? or am I just being crazy? Can someone please clarify this am I supposed to be self-independent?
FYI, I'm a newbie programmer and the language I am handling is ASP.NET VB

UPDATE: After talking to one of my friend, he told me to discuss with the manager to clarify the misunderstanding, expectation, limitation,etc.... I ask the manager to set a time where I can have a talk with him. So in that Skype call, I brought up the compile file issue. I told him my side. He said past is the past and then he started to rant about my mistakes and not being efficient and so on. So what happen was, I didn't get to ask my questions. He took up the whole call and just keep on talking. I didn't even get the chance and when he ask me got anything to say, I just don't know what to say after that cause I sense that he didn't want to talk about from my side. and then like that he end the call cause of some emergency
