Don't panic! Those are the easiest increases to do so you should learn them and this is a good way to do it. Scroll down to KFB and YO to see the two videos. I'd post the direct link, but I don't know if you knit continental or english.

Even if you choose not to do squares it's a valuable lesson.

So I did my first square, took me a couple of hours but I really enjoyed doing it. I have a question though, I have either this yarn http://www.yarnfwd.com/vintagedk.html or this one http://www.yarnfwd.com/vintage.html I THINK it's the second one though cause I know it's worsted that I bought. Are these ok to use for squares for a blanket or dishcloth or should I use these for something else? I originally bought it to use as hat yarn.

Sure, those should be okay. You just want to make sure that you're knitting all your squares with the same gauge yarn. I made a sweater with Vintage. It's a very nice yarn!

Your square looks great!

If you're going to seam or crochet them together it won't matter anyway.

Your square came out great!

The pattern is perfect for a dishcloth or a blanket square. Use depends on what kind of yarn. If you're using either of the yarns you linked to, I'd think it's better for a blanket. Wool and hot dishwater don't quite mix together...
