Don't try to use AE just by fooling around with it! You'll just get frustrated and waste time.
Begin at the beginning, and here's a good place to do it:

I recommend following Dave's advice and looking for basic workflow methods, and develop your vocabulary/understanding of the application that way.

I can tell you what the problem is in your specific example though. Layers exist inside of Compositions, you have not created a composition in your project, so you can't create or edit any layers because there is no composition to create or edit them in yet.
