If the tampon is at the top of your vagina, the easiest way to remove it is to squat down, bear down, and try to insert two fingers to grab it between them like scissors. If you aren't able to do so, see your health care provider or your local family planning agency. They have heard this complaint before, and will be able to help in a matter of minutes.

I hope you are not wearing a tampon when not on a period. This is unhealthy and if you are just starting your period you should not be using a tampon until you are older.
