I don't know about searching a string, but to go to some column - just
add the column number and :.
file1.txt:12:5:  trararar
file1.txt:190:24:  gfhgggg
file.txt:345:77:  dfasdf

Please note that the 1st 2 lines of the buffer are ignored, so leave
2 empty lines in your buffer before the actual references.


BTW. if you checked the `next-error' help that I recommended, you should
     have found about the `compilation-error-regexp-alist' variable,
     that control the parsing of the "error" lines.
