Hey there!
There's a couple of ways you can do this:

1. You can save the file as a .gif and check the "transparency" box when you save.


2. Once you get the image to where you like it, you can save it as "index color" (under the "Image>Mode>Indexed Color" menu) and check the "transparency" box in the window that pops up. This will force you to flatten your image, so I suggest saving a layered copy in case you need to go back and make any changes.

Hope this helps!

Delete the background using marquee and erase tools, then save the image as GIF. Those other methods work as well.
