Hey, welcome to the club. Do you have any pics?
Anyways, it could be the mechanical flasher in the fuse box (the silver round thing), or it could be something broken in the steering column. I recommend if you change the flasher, get an electronic flasher. It will plug in exactly like the mechanical one but your turn signals will speed up. I had a problem with mine that they flashed so slow you couldn't always tell when I was turning. Hope you get it fixed. Good luck!
