Thanks to you i have learnt solving the cube using beginners method i.e. cross, first, second and last layer.
But i want to begin with speedcubing so where can i start? I tried learning f2l by using different tutorials but ended up getting confused.

Here's a pretty comprehensive F2L tutorial, I think this was the video I used when I was first learning F2L myself. Once you understand these concepts you'd be well on your way to figuring out how to solve all F2L cases intuitively. Good luck!

Legoboyz3! has a very good and concise tutorial on F2L. Here's a tip: DO NOT LEARN ALGS.

If you want to get faster at your F2L, Legoboyz3! also has an intermediate F2L tutorial.

If you get really fast and you feel like you're not doing cases efficiently, Chris Olson has an advanced F2L series which shows you how to do many cases more efficiently and without rotations.

If you use beginner's method, first look at what Sune (R U R' U R U2 R') does to different cases of corner orientation. In your case using Sune while looking at blue gives you a case where you can use the mirrored version of Sune or Anti-Sune to orient the corners. Or you can learn 4LLL and be faster.

If you're using LBL, then in the case mentioned you should first do U R U' L' U R' U' L. If corners aren't in the correct places, repeat the alg. Then you can orient the corners.
