Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Based from what or how your question is written I would suggest the following:

  1. Go to the Ubuntu Software Center
  2. Search for "hplip", or click here: hplip Install hplip
  3. Install HPLIP (might already be installed)
  4. Connect the printer (USB)
  5. Run HPSETUP (Alt+F2 & enter "hp-setup")
  6. Follow the wizard to setup your printer
