the road to pure mathematics

In another post I talked about my recent interest in pure mathematics and how it developed. I'm actually studying college algebra by myself, with a textbook I found in a public library, and using Basic Mathematics by Serge Lang. My question is how should I continue my studies? Do I continue with calculus or get into discrete math? I'm still a beginner so I'm asking for guidance from a fellow mathematician.

Math Focus: Calculus/ODEs
Re: the road to pure mathematics

I would proceed next to a pre-calculus text, which will fortify your algebra, get you into trigonometry, a deeper study of functions and introduce you to mathematical induction.
