I was opened my file only to find that I could only select grey scale colour in the colour swatch. upon googling my problem I found that I must've made my file greyscale but I can't select mode either. 

thanks for the help

You are in Quick Mask mode. Hit the Q key to exit Quick Mask mode or click the Quick Mask mode button on the tool bar (icon just below the color swatches in the Tool bar)
