Perhaps consider learning both. They are very closely related, as
far as languages go, as you may have guessed from the names. If you
learn C to begin with, then, C++ is like adding extra words to the
existing C vocabulary.

Note, most programming languages are very similar in terms of the
concepts they describe. So once you have learned one, the rest come
much more easily..
