Firstly; if this is your first time, welcome to Gentoo!

To be able to help you with this, we're going to need some more information. Can you provide all of the output showing you this error message (as in, the command you entered and everything that is printed out on the console up to and including the error message).

Can you also show us the output of the commands `free -k` (shows your memory usage), `df -k` (shows your disk usage) and `dmesg | tail -n 50` (shows kernel error messages) immediately after you encounter the error?

In addition to the information that wraeth requested, please provide the output of emerge --info.
