I just set up my adwords and when I do a search on Google it takes me to my ad. But when I click on my ad it just goes to google and not my web page. Could anyone help ?

You should check your display and destination URL in your ads. http://support.google.com/adwords/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=6313

In addition to Kim_Clink's answer, the Ad and Keyword can have seperate destination URLs. The keyword will trump the ad URL. So make sure the URL you want to send traffic to is correct in both locations.

To be honest , I would like to suggest you spend 25-40 $  a year for a proper  host,  build yourself a 4-5 page website with information that convinces potential clients to hire you,  and only then start with advertising through Google AdWords.

 

With the landing page you have at the moment there is a fair risc your account wil be suspended soon.  Google AdWords is looking for Quality Landing Pages more and more.

 

As for the clics going to Google, I advice you to have your computer checked for malware and virusses.
