Uncommitted changes in source tree with github

I am a newbie at sourcetree and am using it with github. When I look at the master branch, I see a section uncommitted changes at the top. What is this for? I didn't see any information either in git/github on that. I didn't find any documentation in source tree anyway. Please provide inputs, if any. Thanks

When you make changes to your working copy (the files you can edit), SourceTree shows those in the chart as "Uncommitted changes" on whichever branch you have checked out. You won't see that item in Github, because Github has no knowledge of your working copy.

If you switch to the "File Status" tab, you'll see that you have "Staged" or "Working Copy" changes. These need to be committed to your repository before they will be accessible on Github or by anyone who is pulling from your repository.
