Howdy Strahinja,

It sounds like you're document is set to black-and-white.  To change your current document, go to Image > Mode and choose RGB Color or something OTHER than Grayscale.  If you're having this problem with all your new documents, you've probably accidentally changed your Color Mode in the File New dialog -- change it back to RGB Color using the dropdown, about half way down the File > New dialog.

If neither of these solves your problem, let us know and we can troubleshoot further...

Thanks,
David
