How do you know which ending to use here? This is something I struggle with.

English "of" or 's is usually translated into Polish as Genitive case.

If you're asking when masculine genitive ends in -u and when in -a – there are very few rules, and they're full of exceptions. There are even homonyms with different meanings that differ only in genitive. I suggest simply remembering them and you may start intuitively grasping patterns.
