Ok i want to learn how to start making codes in case i can't figure out how to put the blocks. Where is a good place so that i can learn how to code using stencyl?

if you can't figure out the blocks, coding isn't going to be easier. I would search for tutorials for learning python, its a simple language that will introduce you to the concepts of programming. You can use that to make behaviors in stencyl

I would advise a beginner to use Design Mode in order to understand the basics of programming...

Do you have any specific questions about the blocks? I know can be a little overwhelming, and I write code for a living. Once you go through the Design Mode tutorial, it really does all make sense. And really the blocks represent a coding language in themselves, it just easier on the eyes and you don't have to type as much.

Its not the fact that i can't make blocks. I have actually made a few behaviors myself but i want to try something harder liek coding.

What do you want to learn? If you want to learn specifically how to code in Stency's code mode, there's no way to learn specifically  that from a tutorial. No one has made one. However, there are many other tutorials on using free tools to learn Actionscript.
A note - Many people consider actionscript an easy language to learn, but I personally find it harder than C++ or python.

If you are going to be coding with Stencyl then you want to use the API docs:
http://api.stencyl.com/as3/

Also, since Stencyl is primarily based on Flixel, it useful to become familiar with that framework:

another good way is to look at the preview code tab that is in every behavior
