Index has not been initialized

I am new to Sitecore, not sure how or what was done.  I use the Content Editor feature to make the majority of my changes, while I wait for Sitecore Training, however last week I made updates and now I am getting the index has not been initialized error instead of the content manager tool.  I used the control panel to get to indexing manager and attempted to index the site.  However, the index ran in like "0" seconds and is still showing as never been run.  


Where should I be looking and how do I get back to work?
