    Are you trying to install WordPress locally or on a new website?

    Are you running your own local web server? Or have you purchased commercial hosting?

    Yes I have downloaded it to my pc but I am lost from there. It ask me to go to the read me file and do the installation from there and I can't make that work. I copy and paste the link they ask to into my browser and just sends me to sites. I am so confused with this lol

    For running wordpress locally you need a local webserver like "wamp server".After installing wamp server ,download wordpress zip file.
    Extract that "latest.zip" ,you will get a "wordpress" folder.Copy the folder and paste it on C->wamp->www folder.
    open browser and try to visit
    http://localhost/wordpress/ you can see the installation window....try to fill it
