transfered ether to new adres but geth insist balance is 0

I am new so forgive me for probably asking something stupid.

On a fresh ubuntu 14 lts i installed go and geth.

i created a new account.

next i acquired a some ether on kraken and transferred it to that account.

according to kraken the transfer was completed successful but when checking the account on the console it insists balance is 0.

what i do to check account is:
this returns the address i transfered the ether to.

this returns: 0 (red font)

eth.getBalance(eth.coinbase, "ether")
this returns: 0 (red font)

eth.getBalance("the hex address")
this returns: 0 (red font)

what is the correct way to check the balance?
