I generally strongly recommend learning one instrument before the other. Which two instruments do you want to learn? If they're very similar, learning both may not be so bad. But if they're rather different, such as piano and violin, learn one at a time. This isn't a rule, of course, but for most people that's the best approach.

Best advice though: practice, practice, practice. The more you play an instrument, the better you'll be. I haven't picked up my guitar in a little while, but at one time I was playing every single day for a few months. It made a very noticeable difference in my playing ability. Now that I haven't done it in a month or two, it will be a bit difficult when I pick it up again.

I also play some keyboard/piano. I've never practiced that one much. I just know how to form chords, play scales, etc. It's good enough for me - at least for now.

I also recommend learning general music theory, not specific to one instrument or another. That will help a lot. Once you know what a scale is, and what an interval is, and so on, you can apply it to any instrument once you know how that instrument works.
