If you already have a little dude on your screen, that is very exciting accomplishment and a good start.
If you plan to add more characters to the game, controlled by AI, you're going to want to make some kind of sprite class and perhaps put the AI in a separate class as well just in case it becomes more complicated than you had originally intended.
If anything comes across that is seriously complex, such as online multiplayer, you may consider doing side projects along the way to build your skills without possibly hindering your main project(or deleting it out of frustration when stuff just won't work!).
I would recommend the next step you take in your current project is to get it looking good(use more complex shapes than rectangles). That will build the skills you need to implement graphics throughout the project and sustain your interest in it. Colored rectangles get boring fast, and make your friends and neighbors less interested.
