warnings when installing Git

Below are some warnings I got when installing Git, as a bit of a newbie what would you suggest ?

I did run the xcode-select --install but had no idea what to do with the options that came up after this.

Hope you can help !

Thanks....

Warning: A newer Command Line Tools release is available Update them from Software Update in the App Store. Warning: You seem to have osx-gcc-installer installed. Homebrew doesn't support osx-gcc-installer. It causes many builds to fail and is an unlicensed distribution of really old Xcode files. Please run xcode-select --install to install the CLT. Warning: It appears you have MacPorts or Fink installed. Software installed with other package managers causes known problems for Homebrew. If a formula fails to build, uninstall MacPorts/Fink and try again.
