To be able to play chords and learn new chords you need to understand how to read chord diagrams. You will see these online and in books so it’s very important you can read these.
The diagram is a grid with the strings going left to right, 6 5 4 3 2 1. Then the frets are top to bottom 1st fret to 3rd fret (they can show more than 3 frets)
The grid is basically the first
3 frets of the guitar turned 90 degrees from how you hold it.
The dots tell you where to place your fingers and the numbers are the fingers you place down.
