bathroom fan. Please help!!!!?

Today my dad and I got started on a fan for my bathroom. It turned into a long project and we finally got to the wiring but couldn’t get it to work. So I had a single switch to my bathroom light. We added a fan/light with a second switch dual pole. We got the light to work again but whenever we flip the second switch to the fan, it kicked the breaker off. When connected straight from fan to power it works perfectly. However when connected through the switch that is when fan kicks breaker every time. Please help give me ideas. I only know the basics of circuits, this house was built in the fifties and it is hard for me to grasp what is going wrong. If you need more info just ask. Thank you

Six wires coming out of wall. Two black two white two copper grounds. Ran one set to light over sink ran other set to switch to fan and then one white wire up to fan light unit
