The reason I asked about where you were holding the tail when casting on is because possibly if your strands were reversed, it might affect that first stitch.

The first/last stitch is always looser than the rest--just hold everything a bit tighter, give it a little tug and move on. The important thing when you are learning is to just keep going--don't worry about perfect (if there is such a thing.)
