If you elaborate your situation and tell them how you're feeling and show them you are committed to improving the situation I'm willing to bet they'd be happy to continue working with you.
Then again, I don't know the professor. It could be one of those sour apples that are just impossible to work constructively with. But I think your best bet is communication. Lay everything on the table with them, and decide from there based on how they react.
My research with my advisor felt overwhelming the first few months. I had very little idea what was going on; I only knew the main objective. However, kept I asking stupid question after stupid question, and now I'm doing significantly better and our research is going great. Professor's shouldn't expect you to be a research genius from the get-go, and if they do, they're not the type of professor you want to be working with.
