Vectors are a heading and usually altitude given to you, usually by approach or departure.

Approach will give you certain headings to follow as you are approaching an airport, these are known as vectors and help the pilot navigate there aircraft safely to or from the airport during ascent or descent.

Approach and departure can also provide you with vectors to maintain appropriate aircraft separation with other aircraft in their airspace.
