Drupal itself has only two content types Article and basic page.

Article is used for the content you want to update more frequently.Bu default article works in reverse chronical order means the top recent post comes in the top of your web screen.

Basic page is used for the static content and for the content that you want to link in the main navigation bar.

You can manage the display of your fields by going to Structure > Content type > Click the content type > Manage display .From Here, you can define which fields are shown and hidden when Article content is displayed in each view mode, and define how the fields are displayed in each view mode.

Content items can be displayed using different view modes: Teaser, Full content, Print, RSS, etc. Teaser is a short format that is typically used in lists of multiple content items. Full content is typically used when the content is displayed on its own page.
