For example:

On the c chord when i strum it it doesent sound 'clean', and my 2 'fretting' finger always touches the string behind it, so that string dosent sound and that hapens with every one of my fingers....

Try and get the fingers perpendicular (90 degrees) to the strings as much as possible. Oh... And it takes practice. The more you try, the better you get at it.

You have to make sure your fingers are pressing against the frets at a 90 degree angle. And make sure your bring your wrist around the neck slightly so you can fret each note properly.

i think everyone has that problem when starting. I fixed it by,
Picking three chords such as Em, A (easy transition ) and C. Play through each with one strum. Try to forget about it not sounding clean , because as you become more natural (fingers automatically go to position) You can work on the cleanness then.

You sound like you need to drop your wrist. I can't really describe it on the internet(if I was beside you I could physically show you how to do it) but what you have to do is bring your left hand wrist down from where it is to a lower angle, that way your fingers will have more space to attack the right place of the strings comfortably.

Do it slowly.

It's all muscle memory; once your fingers are accustomed to the shape, you'll be able to fret instantly.
