May I gently suggest you read the Mathematica Book?  Then doing such a
thing will be VERY easy.

Meanwhile, here's an example of a (fat) point, a line segment, and a
(red) circle all on one graph.  Note the AspectRatio option to ensure
that a true 1:1 ratio of horizontal to vertical scales is used.

pt = Point[{2, 1}];
segment = Line[{{-4, 2}, {-1, 3}}];
oh = Circle[{2, 3}, 4];

Show[Graphics[{PointSize[0.02], pt, segment, RGBColor[1, 0, 0], oh}], 
    AspectRatio -> Automatic];

Of course, you don't have to name the objects with separate definitions,
but can put everything directly into the Graphics object, as in:

Show[Graphics[{PointSize[0.02], Point[{2, 1}], Line[{{-4, 2}, {-1, 3}}],
RGBColor[1, 0, 0], Circle[{2, 3}, 4]}], 
    AspectRatio -> Automatic];
