And after this when i select yz plane and sketch, this appears:

And i can't do any sketch.

It looks like you do have a new part and a new sketch, but may I suggest a couple changes to make it easier for you:

1. To start a new 3D model, use FILE + NEW and choose Part in the panel

2. To reset the toolbars into their normal positions, use TOOLS + CUSTOMIZE and choose the TOOLBAR page and then choose the RESET POSITIONS option

3. After you start a new Sketch, click the VIEW NORMAL icon (next to - magnifying glass in the middle of the bottom menu bar) to see what you are sketching
