Depends on the context and wordings in which it's used. Easiest is to learn to differentiate between onyomi and kunyomi reading. When you notice that okurigana (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okurigana) is attached to kanji choose for kunyomi reading. 

When you know you have to read it kunyomi, you may still have to choose between some readings. This is especially true for common words such as 日. If you can choose between slight differences in pronounciation such as 'hi' or 'bi' select which sounds better, or feels better. Another reading for 日 is 'ka' and is used as a counter for days (e.g 五日 which reads as いつか and translates to 'the fifth of ..month"). Some sets of kanji you will have to recognize in context by mere rote learning or exposure to the language in order to know which reading is meant to be used. An example is 今日 which can be read as きょう. I think this pronounciation still stems from old Japanese.

Um.. This may be a dumb question, but how would you know which one to use? Like, How would you know when to use Kun yomi or On yomi?
