Drag the clips onto the Make Comp icon at the bottom of the project window. You'll make a comp in the same size, frame rate and duration as the clip.

Or just change the time in the existing comp in the comp settings.

It looks like somebody's been fooling around with the layers' in & out points. You should adjust them so they're right.

And in case you're running AE 9 (aka CS4; can't tell from the screen shot), you should read this:

Dave's Stock Answer #1:

If the footage you imported into AE is any kind of the following -- footage in an HDV acquisition codec, MPEG1, MPEG2, AVCHD, mp4, mts, m2t, H.261 or H.264 -- you need to convert it to a different codec.

These kinds of footage use temporal, or interframe compression. They have keyframes at regular intervals, containing complete frame information. However, the frames in between do NOT have complete information. Interframe codecs toss out duplicated information.

In order to maintain peak rendering efficiency, AE needs complete information for each and every frame. But because these kinds of footage contain only partial information, AE freaks out, resulting in a wide variety of problems.

I'm a Mac guy, so I like to convert to Quicktime movies in the Animation or PNG codecs; both are lossless. I'll use Apple's Compressor, Adobe Media Encoder or Quicktime Pro to do it.
