I'm writing my EE for English A and I'm not sure if this is clarified anywhere but when citing sources, if I'm using e.g. wikipedia can I just use the source displayed by wikipedia? Or do I need to cite the wikipedia article?

Some people cite it as only the original source, whereas others will cite it clearly noting that they took it from Wikipedia (MLA has rules for such citations). Personally, if you can reasonably verify that what Wikipedia quotes is an actual, legitimate quote and you know the page number then I'd just cite the original source.
