it's very difficult to tell what the problem is based on that. You can try to run xterm instead, by pressing alt+f2 and typing it. You should probably learn how to use the gui before you start using the terminal, and you should read up on the basic use of the commandline before you actually start using it. You shouldn't have to use the terminal at all. It's just a fast and convenient way of doing things for advanced users.

Just seconding Jo-Erlend's answer and giving you a link that might be useful for learning more about the terminal. Normal use should not require it, but some of the more advanced system tweaks will. It is fun to use and often faster for many things (easy way to install apps for example). You might also pick up a book. I found "Ubuntu Linux Toolbox" by Negus and Caen to be quite good.
