Depends on the chords you are playing it over. As said in the post above, it could be C major, A minor (most likely either) or some of the modes. Though I don't like the term "starting with A" or "starting with E". It doesn't matter what note you start the scale with - I mean, a song in C major could start with E and you would definitely not be playing in E phrygian. The root note of the scale is what matters. And what the root of the scale is depends on the chords.

Just remember that there are no boring scales, just boring players.

E Phrygian if it resolves to E, but let's not make this about modes. We have stickies for a reason. Listen to AlanHB, he knows his stuff

I was actually giving a pretty lazy answer. Maggara gave a better one, which is that it really depends on the key of the piece, which will dictate the root of the scale. If the root is A, it's the A minor scale. If it's C, it's the C major scale.

At this point I would just ignore modes. Get a handle on keys first.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.
