Generally speaking, the only "help" that I can provide you is to learn the "Aperture priority" mode first.
Play around and try to understand how the size of the aperture affects your shutter speed and the resulting image.
I shot cans of cokes before understanding what it does. :P
Once you understand, or roughly, you will somehow understand how to use the Manual mode.
