Soucetree commit issue

I am a new user of Bitbucket and Sourcetree. 

I tried to commit a file and load it to the master repository through Sourcetree. Below is a error I got.Please help. 

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false commit -q -F C:\Users\LH\AppData\Local\Temp\bho51okx.n0c

*** Please tell me who you are.


git config --global ""
git config --global "Your Name"

to set your account's default identity.
Omit --global to set the identity only in this repository.

The message tells you exactly what to do. If you hit the Terminal button in SourceTree, you'll get a window where you can run those commands (insert your actual email and name instead of the example values).

You can also set these values within SourceTree.  On PC go to Tools->Options and on General tab, enter your Full Name and Email address.  On Mac, go to SourceTree->Preferences and do the same thing.
