Hi Annamarie, and welcome to Knitting Help. You sure came to the right place, because some others will come behind me to help answer your question.
My first guess is that you just need to push the sock through itself, then you'll be knitting on the right side. I think all sock newbies do this, I sure did.
I LOVE THIS SITE!
