i am just making a console based application to learn this thing. so just explain what to do if i want to use <pthread.h> in my application.

Read the FAQ in the site you linked. All the information is there.

are you sure you really need to use POSIX threads on Windows? The Windows API has plenty of support for multithreading

but if you really do need to use the Win32 port of pthreads, you can get it from here:
http://sourceware.org/pthreads-win32/

and a good tutorial here:
https://computing.llnl.gov/tutorials/pthreads/#PthreadsAPI

EDIT: hmm, the sourceware.org site seems to be down at the moment. try again later.
