Hi Timy,
A great place to start is the WebAIM checklist, found at
http://webaim.org/standards/wcag/checklist
A list of testing tools can be found here:
http://webaim.org/articles/tools/

Also, if you're new to the accessibility field, Deque University offers free courses for persons with disabilities (I assume you are a screen reader user). Find the listing of courses here

To answer your questions:

"1. Do we have any guideline for the content testing?"
See the WebAIM checklist link above. The guidelines for testing in general is WCAG 2.0. Whether it's Level A, AA, or AAA will depend on the guidelines given to you by your employer or government (if WCAG 2.0 is enforceable by law in India, I apologize for my ignorance; I don't know this)

2. Do we avoid links while performing a content test?
I wouldn't avoid links - you need to ensure they're labelled logically and work as you think they should. You may not need to test every link on a page, but a few is a good idea.

3. do we really care about the structure of the headings?
Yes, we do. Having a proper heading hierarchy is ideal. I believe (but may be wrong) that this relates to WCAG 2.4.6. a blog on the subject is below:
http://webaim.org/techniques/semanticstructure/

4. if the edit field doesn't have any appropriate label, and which is inside the heading level one, will we reported?
I believe so. Form fields should be labelled. See this article for help:

I hope this makes sense.
