If you look at the picture, i need motor 1 to turn about 45 degrees, then the motor 2 to rotate continuously for about 5 seconds. then motor 1 needs to go back 45 degress (to its original spot).
I have never used an arduino and this is for my senior project
I need code
i also need help with setting up my breadboard
i also have a relay

You need to tell us what sort of motors you are using (post links to their datasheets) and also tell us how your Arduino can tell when the motor has rotated 45 degrees.
Sorry, I missed the fact that stepper motors are mentioned in the title.

You don't. You use a real stepper motor driver.
I agree with @PaulS - use a specialised stepper motor driver. It will make everything much simpler.
