Actually we really can't answer the question because you haven't given us enough information.

What is the DB going to be used for?
What OSes are you developing for?
What API/libraries are you using?
How many users are you going have?
How much programming experience do you have?

After that we should be able to point you in the "right" direction.

What API/libraries are you using? : this can't tell since don't know which to use

How many users are you going have? : only one user at a time

MySQL is cheap (i.e. free), easily available, commonly used and well documented.

You could also look at SQLite, which can be embedded into your codebase and is ideal for smaller applications.
