You don't say what languages you know, but here are some links with examples and documentation in C.

Firstly, some documentation including a couple of Hello World examples:

Writing Gnome Applets in Gnome2 (http://www.gnome.org/projects/ORBit2/appletstutorial.html)
Panel Applet Library Reference Manual (http://library.gnome.org/devel/panel-applet/unstable/index.html)

and a reference for the panel applet object:

The PanelApplet object (http://library.gnome.org/devel/panel-applet/unstable/PanelApplet.html)

You may also find a GTK+ tutorial useful:
