For the typical use of GnuPG you need two keys:

a) yours (consisting of a public key and a private key)

b) the one of your communication partner (public key only)

You have to import the public key oth the other one. And you have to create 
(or import) your own private key.

For information how this is done and how encryption / decryption is done after 
you got your keys working you should have a look at some documentation as you 
have been hinted at.
