This question already has an answer here:

I'm assigned to create a logo. I wanted to use brush tool to create it, but when I save my design as a PNG, it seems to show the contour of the strokes I made, which looks very unprofessional. How could I fix this?

To fix this just make sure the part(s) you want to cut out is on the top using Ctrl+Shift+], select everything Ctrl+A and use the Minus Front option from the Pathfinder panel.
