Hi and welcome to KH!
Whenever I teach people how to crochet, I always recommend they start out with something small, like a potholder or coaster. That way they can learn the stitches while finishing a project in short order--and maybe not get too frustrated in the process.
If either of those ideas interest you, look at some of the crochet patterns for them on Ravelry. I'd recommend sticking with a basic square or circle. Once you find one you think you'd like to try, either jump in and give it a shot or come back here and ask the experts if it's suitable for a beginner.
One of the regulars here, MGM, has produced some tutorials
if you need basic how-to info.
If you get stuck, you know where you can get help!
