          In Premiere Pro, there is the Timecode effect. You could use a garbage matte to knock off the parts of it you don't want.

           

          In After Effects, you have the Numbers effect which you could keyframe (or use the time expression).

           

          For a loading bar, just make a shape layer and scale it over time in the x direction.

           

          Since you're new to AE, you should start here: Getting started with After Effects It will help you avoid a lot of frustration.

              You can do that with After Effects and the numbers effect. Just play with it a bit.

              Before you do that though, please go through the resources I linked. If you try to use AE without getting a basic understanding of how it works, you're just going to get frustrated.
