The others have given you great advice on how to read your stitches. I'll just add that I always mark the 'right' side of my work on a pattern where the rows alternate. Choose a way that makes sense to you. What I do is place a stitch marker on the right side. so that if the marker is on the side facing me as I'm working, I know from the pattern that I'm working a 'right' side (as opposed to a 'wrong' or back side) row.
