It is either "uno" or "un" or "una".

Use "un" when you have a masculine noun after.  It also means "a" or "an".      un libro   =  a book, one book

Use "una" when you have a feminine noun after.  It also means "a" or "an".     una chica  =  a girl, one girl

Use "uno" when you have no noun or when none is referrred to.
    uno, dos, tres...       or   I have one!  =  Tengo uno.
         1,2,3...

Use "una" when you have no noun and a feminine one is referred to.
    I have one!  =   Tengo una.   (feminine noun referred to.)
