how to use git with local code?

I have my code on local system. I would like to keep versions of that software code, so that I can use different versions with same code.

I would like to keep that in git and with source tree.

Any once has idea about using git with local code and how to add these local files in ST and bitbucket?

Yes, this is very normal usage of Git.

Here are instructions for creating the local repo and pushing it to Bitbucket: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17570446/how-to-add-gitbitbucket-to-existing-source-code-folder

When they say to use Git Bash, the easiest way to do that is to use the Terminal button in SourceTree.

After those steps are completed, you can add the local repo to SourceTree using the Add Repo button (or File > Clone/New...", and choosing "Add Working Copy":

Thanks you so much appreciated your response.

When I commit the code to ST, its showing me below error, can you please tell me how to change my credentials in ST? 

 

Run

git config --global user.email "you@example.com"
git config --global user.name "Your Name"

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

Awesome Seth Foss. It worked. appreciated.

For the identity thing, just run the commands it is instructing you to run in the git terminal. Make sure to put a valid email and name instead of "you@example.com" and "Your Name".
