Photoshop: Quick Mask Tool Help!

Hi, my quick mask tool is not working. I select the part of the image that I want selected and then hit the quick mask tool. When I try to clean up the selection with the white brush, it deletes the parts of the image that are red and adds red to the part of the image that do not have red at the same time. It basically deletes what I am trying to select while selecting the parts that I don't want selected. The black brush has no effect on the selection at all and won't add or delete the red selection to my image. Can anyone help?

The only thing I can think of is to check the blending mode of the brush. Is it set to Normal?

Hit the Q key. Sounds like you're in QuickMask mode.
