Are you booting the Ubuntu iso download from that stick, or did you install ubuntu to that stick, or is Ubuntu running on your PC and you have inserted the stick and want to save something on it?

If you have just booted the download iso from the stick, you should first install Ubuntu properly, as at the moment is works like a DVD drive in LiveMode and those are read only by definition. You can do proper installation of ubuntu to USB sticks by starting the installer and then selecting another USB stick as destination. After that you can boot from that other stick and write to it normally.
