Just to be sure (since you said you were a beginner):

1. You do have some \cite commands in your document?
2. You have run latex then bibtex then latex again?  (latex and bibtex  
are separate programs, so you first need to run latex and then bibtex  
and then latex again.)

If that still doesn't work:

3. Are there any relevant messages that show up in the console window  
in TeXShop?
