I hesitate to recommend the bucket tool to a beginner, but for this specific case it might be exactly what gets you going:

Only be sure to not use it in drawings that you create yourself. Use fill and stroke instead.

You can find an introductory tutorial for Inkscape under Help -> Tutorials: Basic.
It explains about Fill and Stroke.

The detailed manual talks about fill and stroke here:

An introductory manual is available at - you will be interested in the part about colors most.
