It is always good to start with QC on your data. You will find there are several tools to do this.

FastQC (http://www.bioinformatics.bbsrc.ac.uk/projects/fastqc/) and Fastx toolkit (http://hannonlab.cshl.edu/fastx_toolkit/) are good ones to start with. There are utilities that will help you remove the adapters if they are present in your sequences. One more alternative is cutadapt (http://code.google.com/p/cutadapt/).
