You need to create a new page template that uses the Loop to pull in posts:

Sounds like you need to create & publish an empty WP page called Blog. In your WP dashboard Settings, Reading you need to specify Blog as the id for  "posts page" --- I assume you specified a static page for the  'Front Page display'  options? If you want the blog to be on the homepage then specify 'your latest posts' and html pages would just be on the menu?

In order to have posts appear in a Wordpress page, you need to create a new kind of page template in Wordpress that has the code that queries the database and returns the posts.

The Wordpress documentation (Codex) has the instructions and sample code already there.  All you need to do is follow those instructions.

I understand that you are new to Wordpress but this is not a basic function and you will need to be able to read, understand, and follow those instructions to be successful.
