The [user@localhost user]$ is just the shell prompt (like the C:\> in DOS). I'm assuming you got that line off of some site describing how to run commands, so all you need to worry about is the command itself (i.e. md5sum <filename>), not the prompt. The md5sum command is meant to be run at a command prompt.
