I burned fedora 24 .iso into my usb.I booted from it.Selected Fedora 24 workstation...(i selected the first and the second options).Black screen appeared.I waited a long time and something happened.Startup Timeout Script error began.It gave me errors like half a minute then it stopped and launched emergency mode.The last thing i saw is "#dracut :" please help i really want to install Fedora !! Also I've installed Zorin and i want to install fedora.I tried Korora too but the same error.Before Zorin something like this never happened...My usb's format is FAT32 and i made the usb with UNetbootin.

We expect USB installation media created with unetbootin to fail. You are seeing the expected behavior. Please use a direct write method like the one @masteroman suggested.

I would suggest that you first try to validate if image is correctly downloaded by checking image checksum , you can use instructions described HERE.

Also, I would suggest other method of "deploying" image onto usb. I usually just "nuke" usb with dd command and flash image on it:

sudo dd=/home/user/path/to/fedora.iso of=/dev/sdX status=progress

where /home/user/path/to/fedora.iso is full path to your Fedora iso image and where /dev/sdX is path to your usb device (you can check path by listing block devices with lsblk or lsblk -f)
