SSL Self Signed Certificate error

I just installed local flywheel and wordpress with ssl. When doing some basic setup for wordpress and checking the site health i got 2 critical issues and 3 recomended improvments:

2 critical issues:

  1. The Rest API encountred an error:
    The REST API is one way WordPress, and other applications, communicate with the server. One example is the block editor screen, which relies on this to display, and save, your posts and pages.

The REST API request failed due to an error.
Error: cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate

  1. your site could not complete a loopback request:
    Loopback requests are used to run scheduled events, and are also used by the built-in editors for themes and plugins to verify code stability.

The loopback request to your site failed, this means features relying on them are not currently working as expected.
Error: cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate

2 Recommended improvements

Background updates may not be working properlySecurity

  • Warning Could not confirm that the wp_version_check() filter is available.

A scheduled event is latePerformance

The scheduled event, fluentcrm_scheduled_minute_tasks, is late to run. Your site still works, but this may indicate that scheduling posts or automated updates may not work as intended.

I am also having to trust the SSL Cert multiple times a session, is this normal?

Any Help with these issues would be greatly appreciated.
