Then you have made at least two mistakes.
1) You have picked up bits and bobs from videos without any structure or real explanation of why you do that - and for a language like C the "Why?" is far more important than the "How?". Plus most development videos on YouTube are created by people who know little more than you do, and couldn;t teach if their lives depended on it ... Get a book (or better a course) and follow it from beginning to end, doing all the exercises. It may not be as exciting as jumping into code, but it is a much, much better way to learn - and you don't miss out essentials either!

2) You picked the wrong "beginner language" - I'd strongly suggest you shelve C for the moment, and start with C# (or even VB if you must) and get a solid grounding in development using that - it's a lot easier for a beginner, despite seeming to be much, much bigger and more complicated. In fact, it shows you up front how big and flexible it is, and makes the beginner (and expert!) developer's life a whole load easier by hiding the complexities of C behind the scenes where you don't have to worry about them. Get a good book on C# - Addison Wesley do good onew, as do Wrox and Microsoft Press - and a copy of Visual Studio (free from MS!) and follow it through all the way.
