When I write this code:

#include <cs50.h> 

#include <stdio.h>

int main (void)
{
    printf ("Hello, World \n");
} 

and try to compile it gives me this error:

 $ clang hello.c

It's my first piece of code & I don't know what's going on.

An easy way to format code when posting or editing a question: after code is pasted, select it and click the {} icon in the format bar.

The compiler is complaining that there is no "main" function. But the program you have posted does have a main function. One common cause of this problem is compiling before you save the program. If there is a red dot in the editor tab, the program is not saved.
