While running $ roscore I face a problem the terminal stuck

This is expected behavior; the roscore command runs until you stop it. It does not run in the background or start a daemon.

Thanks, so I am supposed to open another terminal while roscore running. Also I want to make SLAM on ROS, but I didn't find helpful materials, any advice

Yes. you'll typically want to have one terminal for each node or launch file that you run. I saw your other question about SLAM; I don't have an answer for it.
