I am lost. I submitted my DNA test on here, but how do I figure out if there are any matches to me on here?

Hi James, and welcome to Wikitree!

Unfortunately, Wikitree is not a place to find DNA matches, because raw DNA does not get uploaded here. Instead, you need to go to the DNA service where you where originally tested (ancestry.com, FamilyTree DNA, MyHeritage, or 23andMe) or upload your raw DNA data to one of the other services or GedMatch.com to find matches.

The DNA information here on Wikitree merely serves as a guide for potential matches that you might want to look for on those other services.

This video shows how one can find their autosomal DNA matches in WikiTree https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1NgD9b3s0Gs

This video shows how one can find their X chromosome matches in WikiTree https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wcoJppPcI6k

Simply register at GEDmatch.com and follow their instructions to upload your AncestryDNA results there. Then add your GEDmatch ID to https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:DNATests

and then you can do the same.
