It's called spam.

Just delete it Emma. If you start getting more of them don't be tempted to reply to them as it just confirms that your address is valid and they'll send you a ton more.

If you're worried about viruses make sure you run an up-to-date anti-virus program and scan at least once a week.

And NEVER open an attachment from someone you don't know. All attachments from people you do know should be scanned by an anti-virus program before opening.
