This is pretty straight forward search box. I would consider putting some padding, maybe about 2px on the search input itself so that the text does not sit directly on the border.
You may want to consider moving the GO button next to the search box.
Also, make sure that your drop downs and search box height are all the same for consistency.

The form could have style "text-align: right;", i think this makes alignment more easy.
Your label-divs could then have "text-align: left;" each.

Please provide some demo code or some example resources for search box code.

I'm not a designer/css developer so i can't do this on my own.

All in all we can't design one for you, however the examples given here by all the experts are pretty good. Use a little bit of padding on the input give it a nice looking button and your good to go.
