My advice for any new player is this:

1. Spend plenty of time learning the combat system. The mooks at Firelink Shrine help with this a lot, especially parrying kicking, and lunging.
2. Remember that equipment can help or hinder you, depending on play style. Just because you can wear heavy armor as a mage doesn't mean you should.
3. Expect to die. A lot. Even the basic mooks can kill you if you're too reckless.
4. Spend your souls carefully.

I suggest not using a guide unless you're really struggling, but that is merely personal preference. You will learn more if you don't use a guide, though.
