Is this an assignment? If so, your instructor has probably given you guidelines for implementing this.

One of many possible ways you could do this is with GLUT. Check out it's mouse motion (https://www.opengl.org/resources/libraries/glut/spec3/node51.html) and mouse button (https://www.opengl.org/resources/libraries/glut/spec3/node50.html) callbacks.

Just websearch either of those callback registration functions in combination with the word "tutorial" and you'll come up with information and sample code you can use.
