if you've got some ftp that came with windows or something, don't use it. seriously, go download cuteftp. when you have that, you'll need the name of the ftp server (it's usually something like ftp.yoursite.com), and the username and password you used to set up the site. those details are for your website HOST, not the place you registered your domain with (unless you did both with the same company).

I downloaded cuteftp but my previous one is CoreFTP.
My host? *bangs head from lack of sleep*
I set up my dotcom with godaddy.com
I didn't do anything else so I don't know if they are my host. THeir email sure as hell didn't clarify it

That probably means you don't have a host. Imagine it like a business. You now have a registered business name, but no where to put your shop. You need to get a shop. Godaddy probably have a hosting plan, or maybe ask around your friends and see which host they recommend. I'm on an Australian host called InfernoHost, but my domain is registered with godaddy. Places like yahoo and geocities do domain hosting too, I think, though I don't know if they're any good.

Don't worry - I did exactly the same thing when I got my first domain. I was like 'Host? but I have a domain name... why do I need a host too?' :P

Double check with godaddy, or look at the details of your plan, if you have one - see if there's any mention of amount of space you have (plans usually start at 50meg, can go up to 500meg depending on how much you pay). If you don't have a plan, chances are you've just registered the domain and not got hosting space too. Or email them if they have a help thingy.
