It sounds like you don't have the correct permissions to do so.  Are you a site collection admin?

Under Modify Site Settings--Site collection administrators--I can see my name there.

Also when I click Discard check out, the message warning saying " are you sure you want to discard check out doesn't pop up" either. Not sure whats going on here.

Thanks for your time.

I see errors on db serevr for transaction log to be full. I think thats why its causing this problem. Do you know how I can truncate the logs?
