We need to know which desktop environment - Cinnamon, XFCE, MATE, or KDE.

Which desktop environment? Is it Cinnamon?
If so, you probably removed the applet named 'system tray' from your panel ( = what you are calling a task bar).
Rightclick on an empty place on the panel, choose 'Add applets to the panel', and a window should come up where you can see which applets you have, and have available. Re-add the applet from there.

Then you may not be using Cinnamon.
Linux Mint comes in different 'flavours' and they are not the same with regards to the interface, so we need to know what you are using. Please type 'system info' into the search box on your menu to open System Info (or open it from the menu) so you can tell us what you are using. This will be relevant for pretty much any question you ask here.

Right click on your panel / taskbar. There should be an add item or similar option. I think in Mate the applet that holds the sound icon is the indicator applet.

Right click on a blank area of panel and choose the option to reset your panel - you'll lose any other customisation to the panel you've made.

I have a feeling you aren't able to follow text based instruction, try watching this small video, should be similar if you're using MATE desktop environment.

You need to add one of the indicator applets - they provide the sound icon in Mate. The correct one was highlighted briefly in that video.
