rm *.c
rm*.h

Is a good starting point. But would be better to just compile your target to a different folder.

You could use the find command

find / -type f -name *.c -name *.h

Make the path as conservative as possible.  Once you are able to list, you can pipe the list to
| xargs rm

You should move the compiled program/s out rather than the source and the compiled objects. Work on the issue with the fewer items.
Usually you want to keep the source in the event you want to make changes in the future.
