If one person is in focus & others aren't, you need more depth of field by adjusting to a smaller aperture, say f/11 instead of f/2.8. If that's not an option, you can use a shorter focal length (& stay where you are) or step back from your subjects, reducing magnification.

What do I do when the two girls are posing next to each but the camera put the focus point on one of them!

Read your camera manual--particularly the section on AF and selection of focus points. And read a book on photography as I've previously said.

This forum can't teach you photography.
