Hi or hello is fine. :) Good morning/afternoon/evening if you want to be more formal. Strangely we don't tend to say 'good day' often. It sounds a little stiff and old fashioned. Also in English (or at least Australia) we tend to follow it up with a "How are you?" type question. "what's up?", "how are things?", or "what's happening?" are common casual expressions. And after giving a (generally short) answer you'd usually then reciprocate with a similar question.

"Hello. How are you?" Or to be more casual, you can say "Hello, what's new?" Then we usually say something about the weather. :)
