Transparent swatches?

I'm using Adobe Photoshop 7 and I was wondering, on the tool bar with my colour swatches, how would I go about making one (or both) transparent? I've been trying to figure it out for a while and it's beginning to drive me nuts.

I apologize sincerely if this has been asked before.

example: When I make a selection on an icon I'm working with and click 'delete', it becomes the colour of the bottom swatch. So, in turn, I would need that swatch to be transparent if I wanted the deleted portion of the selection to be transparent, right? Or is there a setting? (I'm just getting used to using PS7 instead of PSP8.)

Thank you kindly!

I suppose someone knows how to make this particular icon coloring: Image hosting by Photobucket ? I've tried a mixture of pinks on multiply and blue exclusion layers but I can't get it the way I want it.

Help? I use PS CS2. :o)

I would credit but I'm not sure whose is it.
