Switch from Blender Render to Blender Cycles, top of the main interface. That's your main problem - You're working in the old render engine.

Then... You have to set up a bunch of nodes in the node editor - Specifically a Glossy and Diffuse shader going into a Mix shader, which goes to the mesh's material output.
