Dear Roya,
unfortunately I don't know any good introductory books on that topic. It is 
actually relatively difficult to learn. A good perspective on the statistical 
mechanics of hydrodynamics is given in the book of Evans and Morris, and good 
introductory books on small Reynolds number hydrodynamics are that of Batchelor 
and Happel and Brenner. Also check the book by Kirby:
It is not our fault, but hydrodynamics are somewhat difficult to learn. But you 
would probably not start your quantum mechanics course with quantum field 
Please don't blame us and be patient. Hydrodynamics is a subtile thing…
