(1) cos^2 (x) - sin^2 (x) + sin (x) = 0

My attempt:

cos^2 (x) = 1 - sin^2 (x)

I replace cos^2 (x) with 1 - sin^2 (x) in the equation, right?

I get this:

1 - sin^2 (x) - sin^2 (x) + sin (x) = 0

Do I factor out sin(x)? If so, what happens next to get me on the right track to the answer? OR....do I rearrange the sin(x) terms to be in the form ax^2 + bx + c?
