Wordpress itself doesn't directly help you insert Adsense code into your website.
There are, however, Wordpress Plugins.
You access Plugins from the Wordpress Admin area. Go to "Add New" and you will be met with a search page. If you just search for "adsense" you'll find lots of different plugins that help you out.
Personally I only choose Plugins that have 5 stars. This means other users have tried it, and they're aren't finding anything wrong.
I also tend to choose Plugins that advertise how simple they are. I know some people want lots of options, and to customize it. I just want to get it working with as little effort and learning as possible.
My recommendation is Simple AdSense Insert
It fulfills my two criteria, and as a bonus it's up to version 1.4 this means they're actively developing it, so if anything happens - like google changes how adsense works - these guys will make sure their Plugin still works.
