What can I file for?

I have been currently unemployed for the whole 2013 year, and tax season is coming up here soon and I was wondering what I could file for? During the year I purchased a 2013 TDI Jetta, can I get anything back on the taxes on that or not? Can I file for all my sales tax like food, gas, ect. I have also been in school full time but using the GI bill, but can I file for the gas cost of me driving back and fourth every week, and if so would I have to have the receipt or just proof I have been in school and proof of my residency to show I have been driving from point a to b every week to school. I am not that good with taxes, can someone please help guide me to what I can claim and can't, or advise me to just have my girlfriend claim me as a dependent. Any suggestions would help very much cause I am struggling financially right now, no job and just living off of BAH.
