You've received 16 units of work. Everything looks good so far. As the work is completed, BOINC will automatically upload and report it and send you more work. You don't need to do anything.

Okay, so I found the task section. How do I complete or work on a task? All I can do is pull up the graphics. Thanks.

As said, you don't need to do anything. Your computer's CPU will work on tasks, there's nothing that you as a user needs to do, just keep the PC/Mac on.
