The first symbol on the staff is the clef.

There are several clefs. The more often used are the Treble Clef or G Clef:

The Treble Clef is used by high-pitched instruments such as the violin, flute, and trumpet, and by other lower-pitched instruments such as the guitar.

And the Bass Clef or F Clef:

The Bass Clef is used by low-pitched instruments like the double bass, cello, and the trombone.

When you are reading music, notice the clef in order to correctly identify the notes.
