Open the Mac App Store application and click on the "Update" button and let it go get the update.

If you still have OS X 10.7.5 (Lion), then go to your Software Update (under the Apple menu), and let any updates install. Those system and security updates are always free.
And - the Java update will help you in one way. It will automatically disable the Java plugin, if you don't use it for some extended period. When you do encounter a web site that needs Java, it will offer to enable, or download the Java plugin. Otherwise, Java will be disabled by default. You probably should leave it off, you might not actually use it at all. Your system will tell you if, and when it might be called for.
Javascript, on the other hand, is more useful - and (strangely enough) does not have any connection to Java, except for the name. You can choose to have Javascript enabled, or leave it turned off. It's not related to the Java issue, however.
