If you're going to read Hume, first you need to read Locke. Read Essay Concerning Human Understanding, then read Treatise on Human Nature or Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding. A ton of Hume's Enquiry is simply building on or refuting Locke, who pretty much set the standard for post-18th century philosophy with the Essay
Honestly, if you can read English, you can pick up the Enquiry Concerning Human Understand with no technical knowledge and get a great deal out of it.
Maybe not as much as with preparation, but it can function as a stand alone work. It might help to be comfortable with older forms of English though. As for myself, I am particularly fond of English between the 16th and 19th centuries so it's an absolutely delightful read, but I hope you just pick that sucker up and get to learnin'.
Keep in mind, one can really enjoy something without "believing it" or feeling that it is "correct". I am still in a formative time, what I got most of the Enquiry was a feeling of kindred spirits across space and time and that reassured me.
