OpenGL cutting the bottom side of a circle


// #include loads up library files, the order can matter
// generally load glut.h last
#include  // this library is for standard input and output
#include "glut.h"// this library is for glut the OpenGL Utility Toolkit

// this is the initialisation function, called once only
void init() {
    glClearColor(0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0); // set what colour you want the background to be
    glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION); // set the matrix mode, we will look at this later
                             // set the projection window size in x an y.
    gluOrtho2D(0.0, 500, 0.0, 500.0);

// this is the display function it is called when ever you want to draw something
// all drawing should be called form here
void circle() {
    // draw circle
    float theta;
    glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT); // clear the screen using the background colour
    glColor3f(1.0, 0.0, 0.0); // set colour to red
    for (int i = 0; i < 320; i++) {
        theta = i * 3.142 / 180;
        glVertex2f(190 + 50 * cos(theta), 250 + 70 * sin(theta));
    glFlush(); // force all drawing to finish

// this has the effect of repeatedly calling the display function
void display() {

// as with many programming languages the main() function is the entry point for execution of the program
int main(int argc, char** argv) {
    glutInit(&argc, argv); //perform the GLUT initialization
    glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_SINGLE | GLUT_RGB); // more initialisation
    glutInitWindowSize(800, 600); // set window position
    glutInitWindowPosition(0, 0); // set window size
    glutCreateWindow("Circle"); // create a display with a given caption for the title bar
    init(); // call init function defined above
    glutDisplayFunc(display); // define what function to call to draw
                       // the last function in the program puts the program into infinite loop
    // this line exits the program
    return 0;

I've added comments so you can understand my code. The code creates a big red circle, and cuts the bottom right side of the circle, but I want to the cut only the bottom side. How can I achieve this? I would really appreciate the help.
