When I take photographs outdoors during snowfall, the snow flakes creates circles in the picture and end up blurring what I was actually trying to photograph. I'm a beginner, am I completely oblivious to something?

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
If you're shooting snow at night with a flash, and the circles you're talking about are large, white, and fuzzy, what you're seeing are "orbs"--out of focus reflections of the on-camera flash burst from particulate matter in the air--like snow. This can also happen with rain and dust.
The only way to avoid it is to a) not use the flash, or b) adjust the angle of the flash (or use a flash off-camera) in such a way that these reflections don't came straight back to the camera lens. With a point and shoot camera, this can be difficult, since the flash is so close to the lens, and you probably don't have an external hotshoe or other way to trigger a remote flash.
