J'ai -- I have.
Je suis -- I am.

J'ai une voiture. -- I have a car.
Je suis heureux. -- I am happy.

That said, later on you will discover avoir and être as auxiliary verbs. But for now, stick with the lessons and progress step by step.

You use j ai instead of je suis  because j ai is smaller than je suis
