Hi! I had the same problem when I purchased an Acer computer. Acer devices often come with a customized form of Linpux Linux installed on it.
I wouldn't recommend you to continue using it for a beginner since it can be a hard task to customize and install a GUI on a very basic command line version what is provided by your computer manufacturer.
Now you have the following options:
1. Buy a copy of Microsoft Windows and install it using this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf408Rkc5IA
2. Download an easy to use distribution of linux like Ubuntu or Linux Mint which you can get from http://ubuntu.com
You can install both of them using these tutorials:
Hope I helped you.
