Can anyone suggest a good book on basic number theory or an introduction text to it. I have been looking but don't have much of an idea on what to use.

Thank you.

I think Dudley's Elementary Number Theory is a nice introduction, and it's a Dover paperback and therefore cheap:

Intro to Number Theory

I also have another book, more a walk into number theory rather than a formal introduction: Ogilvy&Anderson's Excursions in Number Theory.
