In the left hand panel go to Content->Site Content->Content drilldown.

It will show the pdf_docs folder as a total, then if you click on that it will take you inside the folder and show the stats for the documents within it.

i tried that. when it loads in the main page, my pdf_doc folder is there in the list, i click on that and it just loads that one line of stats.
even if i try to look at the in-page analytics it doesnt show anything next to the doc links.
is it because they are dl links and not opening in a browser?

My apologies - I thought pdfs were considered a pageview but they are not. You need to take extra steps to track pdf downloads via GA:
