Hi Sayan,
Please get yourself a nice introductory book related to CFD.
(See books section in this forum).
It's relatively easy to start using a commercial tool without knowing the basis, but that will most probably result in a failure. And never under estimate the first principals and 1D simulations, one should always compare his/her CFD results with them.
If you have access to commercial CFD codes Fluent/CFX will be good.
Otherwise you can try open source package OpenFOAM.
