Go ahead and try to quest, you'll be sidetracked constantly by caves, mines and other things to investigate.
A few tips that may help you on your way:
making money looks hard, but isn't hard at all. Once you have Riften, the college of winterhold and Whiterun, you can make cartloads of money by smitting and later enchanting.
simply buy up all the iron and steel in Whiterun (there's 3 blacksmiths in total) and make iron/steel daggers. Enchant them (enchanting table is in the castle, in the right chamber) using a petty soulstone. it'll now be worth around 300 gold and it costs about 100 gold to make. This is also a good way to level your smitting and enchanting fast.
while playing, you'll soon be too strong for normal draugrs. When you run into one (asuming you have a shield), back yourself in a corner and just block, you'lll have 100 block in no time.
last one, early stages it may also pay off to have heal equipped to your left hand and a sword on the right. hacking away at your enemies is slower, but you're constantly upping your restoration skill.
hope this helps!
i see i forgot to say why riften and the college are important......
riften's not that important actually, but has a blacksmith that you can easilly find who usually carries a lot of iron ingots. the college has tons of stores, all selling soulgems (empty and filled ones).
