Clone a repository but not sure how to create src folder

Sorry, It may be stupid. I created a repository in Bitbucket, then I copied the uri to SourceTree to clone it to a local destination.

Now I found there is a .git folder. I saw usually there is a src folder in other guys. Is the src folder is created manually? Also there is no master and develop branches shown.

I want to use Visual Studio to deploy the code.

You have to create the source folder. the branches (including master) will appear only when you checkin some files.

Thanks. I checked in the code in SourceTree in master, but it only shows master branch without develop branch. Do I miss some steps?

You need to create the branch by yourself as well. Stash gives you the option to give with any branching strategy you like. Gitlfow is only one of the options but you have to create the branches.
