Follow the below steps to fix the error Contact Your Admin to Enable Embed Code Creation which comes while trying to publish Power BI report using Publish to web option.

First, go to the Power BI admin portal using the tenant administrator account by clicking the setting from the ribbon.

Then go to Tenant Settings as showing below. Here only one thing to remember is that only the tenant administrators can see this option. So if you are not an admin then please contact him directly.

After selecting Tenant Setting, you will see a lot of options where you need to open Publish to web options.

Then choose who you want to get this applied to.

This is the last option where depends on how you want to authorize this option, you have here two options to either authorize it to the entire organization (use it carefully), or specific security group, or to everyone except specific security groups.

Once you apply the change, those authorized users should be able to use the Publish to Web feature simply and easily.
