Windows 10 Activation Errors

I just finished building my new computer and went to install Windows 10 Pro. I booted from the usb, put in the activation code, and then I was asked where Windows 10 should be installed. I then realized that my hard drive wasn't plugged in, so I plugged it in and then turned off my computer and turned it back on. I got all the way through the setup and installation, and then I noticed a message at the bottom right corner of my monitor telling me to go to the settings to activate Windows 10. In the settings, I got an error message that says that Windows can't be activated on this device because the code was already used on another device. I tried putting the code in through the settings a few times, but it's not getting me anywhere. I got the usb for full price on amazon. Can someone please help me?

Call Microsoft at (888) 652-2342. That is their activation hotline.
