The following will generate 3 plots, with PlotLabels that
read "This is plot 1", "This is plot 2", etc.

In[1]:= Do[Plot[x^n, {x,-2,2},
	       PlotLabel -> StringForm["This is plot `1`", n]],
	  {n, 1, 3}]

You can place formatted expressions inside strings using StringForm.
The control sequence `1` allows you to embed printed forms of
in text strings.

Hope this helps.
