I don't want to be rude, but did you just migrate from Windows?

Linux is the operating system itself, the core.
It handles everything that your computer do, such as writing to disk,
managing memory, managing you hardware, etc.
The kernel is not visible to the user, except when booting.
GNOME is a piece of software on top of Linux. It's a desktop
environment, all the windows, buttons, and menus you see.
GNOME is not part of the operating system, it is an add-on.
Linux is also able to function without GNOME.
