This is a pretty broad subject to cover in a post. Have you looked at the Reference section on the Spanishdict site? Go to More, click on Reference and scroll down to a link (in blue) Subjunctive. This would be the best way to start.
Using the subjunctive almost always requires two clauses: an independent (main) clause and a dependent clause. There is almost always a change of subject in the dependent clause.
As to the verb "pensar" it does not require the subjunctive.
Creer requires the subjunctive when it is negative.
Creo que viene mi amigo. I believe that my friend is coming.
No creo que viene mi amigo. I do not believe that my friend is coming.
Check our the Reference section.
There is also a video lesson on the subjunctive.
