When you upload a GEDCOM, it doesn't automatically connect to you, because not all GEDCOMs have the person uploading them as the root person. So you just need to merge any profiles you created manually (such as your own) with profiles from the GEDCOM.

It looks like you only created two manual profiles: yours and your father's. So you just need to merge the two profiles of you, and the two profiles of your father. Then everything will be connected properly.

Let me know if you need any more help with this.
