Any spell is fine; there isn't really any specific type I'd recommend. You have to start somewhere. Choose something that interests you instead of something that might be simpler or come more easily.
If you've never done a spell before, you should read up on spell casting and how to do a ritual. I don't know what your religion is, and how you protect yourself during a ritual differs depending on that. I believe Wiccans cast a circle of protection. In my religion, we create a physical or spiritual boundary (not necessarily a circle) outside in nature, and bless the area with juniper smoke first if we can.
I'd recommend spells that have no repercussions for failure. Don't start right off with black magic, and avoid the fluff/Fantasy section- you're only setting yourself up for disappointment there.
My first spell was a charm. I charmed my favorite lip gloss to make me look cuter. It worked pretty well; I always got more compliments with that particular gloss afterwards, even though there'd been no difference before. Protection charms are useful when you're new to the craft and easy to do, so I'd recommend that.
Best of luck, and you can PM me with any questions you have.

Well, if you're serious about learning how to do magic and with starting from the rock-bottom then you don't start out by casting spells, you start out by learning how and why magic works.
You see, there is no such thing as an "easy" spell or a "beginner" spell. One either understands how magic works and has mastered the basics...in which case the magic will work..or you haven't done that sort of work..and no spell will work no matter how "easy" it seems.
Casting a successful spell involves much more than finding some spell on the internet or in a book, saying some words, lighting a candle, waving a wand of any of that sort of thing. In order for magic to work you need to understand how and why it works in the first place. Grounding and centering, visualization, focus and intent, energy manipulation, etc are all necessary first steps to even begin to have a chance at a spell actually working...and more importantly to prevent a spell from back-firing on you.
So, my advice for anyone who is truly serious is to start by reading a few books and practicing the exercises those books will give you. Once you have mastered the basics you won't need anyone to give you spells, you'll be able to create your own spells that will be far more effective than anything you find on the net. Here's the books I suggest:
"Before You Cast a Spell" by Carl McColman
"Spells and How They Work" by Janet and Stewart Farrar
