Hi there! My name is*****'m sorry that you're having this trouble. It would be my pleasure to assist you. You didn't mention whether you were the full version of WordPress, hosted, or whether you're using WordPress.com. Fortunately, with either one, you can delete a category, and the posts will not be removed or deleted, the posts will automatically be added to the default category. “Uncategorized” is the default category. unless you've changed in the Settings > Writing panel. I do advise that before you begin deleting categories, you check to make sure that you know what your default category is, so you will know where to find them.

Once you are sure that the default category is set to your satisfaction you can begin deleting categories, safe in the knowledge that the posts will all be moved into the default category, and you can delete all other categories.

When you're ready, to delete a category, go to Posts > Categories and select Delete. After that you can start to create new categories and organize the posts and categories to your liking.

Here's a link to information that shoudl be very helpful to you as you create new categories and begin to organize your WordPress site.
