Click on the first link, Sitemaps. A new page will open with the word Add/Test Sitemap at the far corner of the right side of the page.

When you clink of the above link,  small pop up window will appear. Fill in the URL of your blog like shown below;

You can test the sitemap for errors before submitting it by clicking on the Test Sitemap button. Once you are done testing and there are no errors, click on Submit Sitemap. A  message will be displayed that shows the sitemap was submitted. Click on Refresh this Page or you can choose to close it if you do not want to see the number of pages submitted and indexed.

Once you click on Refresh this Page, you will be able to see how many pages you have submitted for indexing and how many of them have been indexed. If  you find that you have pages which are submitted but pending for indexing, you just have to be patience and soon they will be indexed.
