Hi I have just bought a new Epson printer

Which printer?

and what I would like to know which profile I should be using.

For what paper?

I have calibrated my monitor with Color Monkey but it doesn't do the printer I couldn't afford that one so should I be using the printers profile or the Color Monkey one. I use Adobe CS6. I'm all very new to this please forgive my ignorance.

Your ColorMunki Display only produces profiles for your display. It should set them up so you need to do no more.

Perhaps you should consider reading a little about color management:

In general, to start out, I would suggest turning off color management in Photoshop, and letting the printer deal with color management, at least until you better understand what you are doing.

It isn't difficult. We all started with no knowledge. But it will take some reading. And perhaps hanging out on the forum.
