Congratulations on your first project and welcome
Here's the video for picking up sts, scroll to the bottom, it's one of the last videos. Here's an example of stitch markers, they are used to mark different parts of your knitting (pattern repeats etc). You don't have to get the fancy and expensive ones, you can always use a piece of scrap contrasting yarn or simple plastic rings. Hope i could help
