Is it not recommended to take an economics course when I haven't done it in a level? Haven't done maths either except for GCSE

Not all economics courses required A level Mathematics (and most don't require A level Economics, as not all schools/colleges offer it). For example, University of Manchester has two Economics undergraduate degrees (in addition to some "Economics and ..." joint honours degrees):

BSc Economics (here) requires A level Mathematics. Year 1 includes modules such are "Advanced Mathematics" and "Advanced Statistics".
BAEcon Economics (here) does not require A level Mathematics. Year 1 includes "Introductory Mathematics" and "Advanced Mathematics".

If you wanted to study Economics without having A level Mathematics, you should target degree courses similar to the second one above.
