This state is called detach head mode as is meant to look around the tree and checkout different versions, if you want to pull changes and/or do local commits, you need to have an active local branch.

The command "git branch" will list all local branches, you should have one named "master", this is the main one. "git branch -r" will list  remote branches (the master branch is also called origin/master when dealing with git remote). It is important to remember that you always make a copy of a repository with git, and that you synchronize that copy when you pull/push.

In order to switch back to the master branch, simply do "git checkout master". This will bring you back to a normal operational mode where you will be able to pull as you want.
