I need this answer right away, I'm on a time constraint.

When I draw a circle using the ellipse tool it fills in black no matter what I have selected for the color.

Which product are you using?
Which version?

In recent versions of Photoshop, the vector tools have a fill and stroke contents option in the tool options bar that overrides the foreground color.

Check the Color panel. Make sure you have the foreground color selected.
