There's no right answer, it depends a lot on the situation.

When I bought an SLR, the first thing I did is read a book on exposure (in this case, 'Understanding Exposure' by Bryan Peterson), which definitely offered an excellent introduction to picking appropriate settings.

When in doubt put it on Program mode will be Auto settings. Without knowing what camera you have its really hard to suggest.

Read all of the chapters in this link:

That should give you a starting point for more research and general fiddling with settings.

Then shoot, shoot a lot, on all different settings. If you're shooting film, take notes on how you shot each frame so you can see what happened when you get your prints.
