Sounds like you're trying to add the file from the web interface.  Usually
you add the files via the filesystem you've cloned the repo to. Ex:

git clone https://git.com/username/my-repo
cd my-repo
[edit/add files]
git status # to preview your chnages
git commit -m"Adding new and changed files to my repo"
git push

Then go to https://git.com/username/my-repo

and you should see the changes.  I'm assuming you're putting all your
changes in your master branch.

I guess you can files via the web interface, but I've never done that.
