Just delete all layers that cover the "background" and cut out any filled area that you want transparent on your other layers.

If you want the background transparent in a new image you can do File > New (or Ctrl+N) and choose Background Contents: Transparent
For an already created image, if your image was created with the Background Contents set to white or another colour then I think you'd need to duplicate the background layer, and delete the original background layer.

A quick way is to double-click the Background layer and rename it. The default name is Layer0. Photoshop will then offer to save the file as a native (.psd) file. Only certain formats support transparency.

Gif files support transparency.

I assume the pictures are to be displayed on the web so create transparent gifs for this

hope this helps
