कुछ translates most often to "some", but sometimes to "something". Here it's negative, कुछ नहीं plays the role of Nothing in English.
The former is used as a common reply for "What happened?" Example: speaker1: "क्या हुआ?" (What happened?) speaker 2: "कुछ नहीं" (Nothing/nothing happened)
The latter is used as a quantity determiner, where "कोई" means "any" or "some" if we're talking literally. So, it's used for countable nouns. So for example, someone asks Speaker1: "क्या वहाॅं कोई है?" (Is anyone there?) Speaker2: "नहीं, वहाँ कोई नहीं है " (No, there's no one there)
This has the singular 'hai' ending. If it was plural it would have the nasal 'hain' ending. Keep up the hard work! : )
