Going through the basic tutorials is probably going to help you the most, both in getting comfortable with the editor and understanding game development in general. The video tutorials are a great starting place: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZlv_N0_O1gaCL2XjKluO7N2Pmmw9pvhE
Another great place for tutorials is the forum: https://forums.unrealengine.com/forumdisplay.php?12-Community-Content-Tools-and-Tutorials
You can take a look in there and see if there are any ground-up tutorials you can follow along with.
And of course there are tutorials post on our Wiki: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Main_Page
I would recommend trying this one: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Blueprint_Six-DOF_Flying_Pawn_Tutorial
If you're looking for a basic intro to game development, there are several very good books out there. Do a search on Amazon for Game Development, and look for titles that teach the basics. You might benefit from this series, despite it being a few years old: http://www.amazon.com/Game-Development-Essentials-An-Introduction/dp/1111307652/ref=pd_sim_b_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=0H9H5V7S13DRGN1QB6H4
Other than that, become a part of the community on the forums and ask questions there! The community is very supportive and you may find exactly what you need there.
Hope that helps!
