it says "sorry you can't edit this wiki".

Is there any way to do it. 

I need to remove some personal information.

Are you an active user? Have you scrobbled? What Bio are you wanting to edit?

I've never used last.fm, so I'm completely new. It's just that something shows up in the google search results when you google my name, which I would like to have removed. Is there any way you are able to do it for me if we take it via private message?

Hi,
there is a sort of protection against vandalism, by forbidding fresh users (like I understand you are) to make any actions on the site, other than scrobbles themselves.
So, you need to scrobble some songs before you are permitted to edit that wiki info you desire. 
Not sure about this either, by I believe there is another block on very fresh users to be able to edit things even if they have the minimum amount of scrobbles but they still are less than 24 hours old (again I suspect this is also a restriction, but I don't have a confirmation about it).
Of course other user can do this for you, if you wish this way, by why not doing this yourself, instead of this third-party thing ? :-)

If, on the other hand, your concern is with personal info about you as a person (other than those related to the artist you have on last.fm) you definitely should contact staff about this issue, and they will surely help you with that (they stick to the laws with severity).
You may directly contact them on this issue here: https://cbsi.secure.force.com/lastfm/submitcase_lfm?template=template_lastfm&referer=lastfm.com&...
or even use the general means of contact from the contact page of the site: https://www.last.fm/about/contact

Are you an artist, is the artist page specifically about you? Or is it an artist who isn't you and shares a name with you and you don't like the information on the page for fear people might think it is about you? What bio are you talking about?

Only active users of Last.fm can edit content on the site.  For more information, please see the following FAQs:
If the biography in question contains personally identifiable information (and you're not public figure, such as an artist or member of a band), you can write to our support team to get this taken down.
