First, try "man gcc". Man is your friend.
Second, I believe that gcc leaves its executable output in a file called a.out by default. To produce a different file, use the -o option. For instance, try "gcc foo.c -o foo". That will compile a file "foo.c" and produce an executable "foo". To execute, try "./foo". Of course, use your own filenames rather than "foo".
gcc has many interesting options. Check gcc manuals, particularly man and info.
