How should I get the background skech removed, this is the scalled down extruded part, thanks
You can turn them off here.
Would it be ok to just hide it?
Turning off the visibility of sketches in this manner is akin to sweeping the kitchen floor and just sweeping the dirt under the edge of the rug. Yes, true, you can't see the sketches any more while there. But the problem rears its ugly head at the point that you use that part in an assy and you do need to work with sketches in that assy. Then your sketches rear up and show themselves. I always teel the folks here to take care of their crap at home, meaning go into the tree and hide them there. That way I don't have to deal with their crap later.
