I generated sensor network with 500 nodes now my question is user has to define the number of nodes as well as it has to generate the number of cluster head for that particular nodes in WSN.

You can use input() or questdlg(). If you use questdlg() then remember that you will get a cell array of character vectors and will need to use str2double to get numeric form.

In your situation, how do you distinguish a cluster head from others?
Sometimes cluster heads are decided by dividing the overall area into fixed-position zones, and then finding one cluster head per zone. But there are other techniques for finding cluster heads that involve trying to share the energy use equally, since cluster heads have to transmit and receive more and to longer distances. There is no one "right" method -- which means that you have to define (and document) how you are going to decide which nodes are cluster heads.
