Serial Monitor showing weird symbols

Hello everyone I am attempting to see results through the serial monitor but I’m getting weird characters (review attachment). I am attempting to use MP3-TF-16P mini MP3 player module with arduino uno but when I run the code I get a popping sound than those weird characters come up in the serial monitor. Anyone went through this or have any suggestions? Thank you

Weird characters usually means there is a different baud rate set on the serial monitor than your sketch is using.

Or that you are using Serial.write() instead of Serial.print().
