I have a circle and a number (which is "1" ) appearing on one of my images automatically. If I go "view" and uncheck "extras", they disappeared but I cannot see also guidelines which I want to show.

I think I hit some keys which I was retouching that image but I don't know what is it and how to remove it.

Can you add screenshot to your question? – Ilan Feb 23 '14 at 20:33

You've accidentally turned on Slices. Slices are a web technology to break up an image into separate areas for exporting. Here's the thing you need to untick to hide it.

Slices switch in View

If they look similar to this....

They are color samples. They are created by using the Color Sampler Tool and clicking an image.

To remove them grab the Color Sampler Tool and Option/Alt click them. (The cursor will change to little scissors when you hover over them with Option/Alt depressed.)
