A compiler is something that takes your source code and creates the executable instructions that a computer can understand.
First of all, we need to know what Operating System. I notice you have a thread about Ubuntu. If you are using Ubuntu then without a doubt you would want to use GCC. GCC is a fantastic C compiler (IMO) and comes with Ubuntu. To compile a basic c program, simply open a terminal and type gcc mysource.c and an executable called a.out will be created (assuming no errors of course). There are plenty of additional options so type man gcc to explore everything it can do.
If you want to use Windows however, then it may be worth trying a few and seeing which you like. If you want an Intergrated Development Environment (IDE) then perhaps you should try Bloodshed Dev, and for a command line compiler I personally use Borland C++. Again, it is completely down to personal preference.
Hope that helps.
