    Web design doesn't use coding languages, it only uses markup languages such as HTML and CSS. Web design also uses programs for creating images, scripts for colour selection, often SASS or LESS for generating the CSS etc.

    Coding languages are used for web development. Most of these run on the server and are completely independent of the web browser.

    The only coding language that a web designer might use (after they have a good knowledge of all of the essential tools for web design) is JavaScript which is the only coding language that can run in the browser (without needing the browser owner to install a plugin).

    If you are after a first coding language to learn for web development then PHP or one of the .NET languages (depending on whether the server is running on Linux or Windows) are the most popular. Alternatively you might consider JavaScript which is the only language that can be used both on the server and in the browser.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.
