One way to know if a command (application) is installed it to type "man <command>" No man page means probably not installed. Also, make sure that what you are looking for actually IS a command (gcc is).
If gcc is not installed, you can install it using the "add software" menu command, or in a terminal with yum. If you have the full Fedora distribution on DVD or several CDs, then gcc will be there. Otherwise, you can get it from a repository.
Try the menu command first.
