I put money in an ETrade Roth IRA account. Now it's there. What is the next logical step?

For the past two years, I have put the maximum allowable contribution in an ETrade Roth IRA account. It is considering this cash and isn't making a lot of money. I thought it would have been a lot easier to figure out what to do.
Do I call a representative? Do they work on commission per trade? Will they try to 'up-sell' me to a service or feature I don't need?
Is this something I can do myself? I am 25 and don't need to retire for a long time. Additionally, I am not likely to need the money any time soon. Is there anything to avoid when investing with ETrade?
I tried to figure out the website and it wasn't easy. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Additionally, if Etrade isn't the best place to have a Roth IRA right now, any suggestions are welcome.
