I am not sure by just breathing. But your body does use calories by just living (it takes calories to run your body). In order to do this, you can look up a Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) calculator. This is the amount of calories you burn just lying in bed all day. Add walking and other activities into the mix and you are burning more calories than the BMR calculates.

Resting metabolic rate depends upon several factors including your age, height, weight and sex. An average 30 year old man might burn 1750 calories per day, while an average 30 year old woman might burn only 1350 calories per day.
