Use the circle selection tool: :EllipseSelectTool:

 

Draw a circle with it.

 

Press Ctrl+I to invert your selection.

 

Press Del.

 

You now have a white background in the shape of a circle.

 

 

hi  draw a circle with that slection tool then i pressed ctrl + l and hit ok then i pressed delete on the keyboard.

 

I still have a square background but with a circle in the middle missing.

 

I really just need a circle shape as the background to start with instead of starting with a box shape background.

To address another thing you may be concerned about... there is no way to have a round canvas. A canvas will always be rectangular.  But, you can work within a circle on a rectangular canvas... I'm hoping this is what you want.

^ You forgot to mention one thing: the easiest way to select a perfectly circular area rather than an ellipse you need to hold down Shift whilst using that tool which is actually called Ellipse Select

 

Same thing applies when drawing a circle using the Shapes tool.

 

On the just posted matter:-

 

It sounds as if you want to create just a circular image.

 

Start a new image and add a new layer. That will be be totally transparent. Delete the default white background layer.

 

Now use the Shapes tool, solid circle, option in the colour you want and draw it on that transparent layer as I've just described. Anything you want to add to the image: create a new layer above the circle background.

 

BoltBait's advice just posted is another way of doing the same thing.
