It sounds like you will need help from someone with some experience. Try to find someone in a neighboring lab who understands the basics. SYBR green is a very good option. With this, you can purify PCR products and use these to generate a standard curve that you can use to determine the absolute quantity of each mRNA in each sample. This thread may be helpful:
