You can't use SourceTree effectively without a basic understanding of how a git repository works. Check out these resources:

Don't worry too much about the literal commands - obviously you prefer a GUI. But it is important to understand what the operations are, and how they interact with each other.
SourceTree's interface maps directly to git commands 99% of the time. So when the docs say to run "git commit", try hitting the Commit button. If they say to run "git add *", try right-clicking a file and choosing "Add".
