Hi there,

this is great! I am sure that you will have a lot of fun!

You need two things: 1. an idea for a small project to get started, and 2. while implementing that small project learn to do the programming.

While I cannot help you with 1. I can give you a pointer for 2. This could be very useful:

This contains everything you need for a game, assuming that you are into games

When I first started learning Xcode programming I bought a book on Amazon which was very useful for basics - and understanding tools, expressions etc. But really, I found it more interesting and I learned a lot more.

Basically what I am trying to say : Watch Youtube videos, and other videos anywhere, tutorials, tips & tricks etc. It helps alot

Good luck with you programming
Best Regards,
Andreas

http://www.71squared.com is great, and I would recommend their book also.
I especially like how the game engine they use completely separates the update / render routines, which had helped make things a lot clearer in my head.
Cocos2d and UIKit are great for doing common things quickly, but when I was first learning, each one of them confused me about how a game should be structured.

I remember that Apple's developer resources were also very helpful. I did not consume all of them and just used them firstly to get started and grasp the whole idea behind iOS programming and later for the sporadical look up.
