Try adjusting your Tools Options.

Go to Tools + Options, and choose Mechanical Design + Sketcher and activate the following options:

Grid: Display: This will display a grid when you're working on sketch.

Sketch Plane: Shade Sketch Plane. This will shade the sketch plane to help you understand which plane you are working in.

Sketch Plane Postion Sketch Plane Parallel To Screen. This will rotate your view to match the sketch plane

If you rotate the view while working on a sketch, you can rotate it back to a true view with the View + Modify + Normal View command.

Repeating the command will rotate the view 180 degrees.
