You should never start off your journey by learning spells, or using them. You should always start off by knowing what you are doing. You don't run before you can walk, you don't want until you know to crawl. The same goes for this, you should start off by learning what you are getting into. You can do so by learning about magick, what it is, and how it works. Get a better understanding about the reality and the fiction of it.
You can learn these by reading a couple forums that I found really reliable;
The Basics: Expanded (by: AwakeTooLong)
Starting Out (by: Starrie)
You can also pursure to see about more information in the "Articles" section, bewaring not everything is truthful, nor is everything realistic.
