I just built my first pc and my still kinda noob with how everything works. I have a everything plugged in but when I try turning my pc on nothing turns on except the lights on the front of the case and lights on my mobo. Did I do something wrong or is there something I missed?

At least lights are turning on so that's a good sign that PSU is working.
Check all power connections, and check all cables and front panel connectors.
Just like he said, check connections again; 24pin, CPU fan, mobo to HDD, mobo to GPU, front/top/back fans to mobo, etc.

Can you take pictures of inside your case and the back (or a video tour) it may be easier to find out whats missing.
But if not what graphics card do you have, some require power connections on it (or if you already know, did you plug in stuff to the gpu?)
Also in addition to the big 24 pin plug there is another one that goes onto the motherboard (usually) is that plugged in or do you not know of one?
