Once you add a menu item, there are a few fields to define:

Adding a menu item to your main menu. 

The Label is the text that will show up on the navigation menu item. Choose 'Page,' 'URL,' or 'File' to choose which type of link you will add. Page will let you choose between various pages that exist on your website, File lets you upload a direct link to a file (such as a PDF file or similar), and the 'URL' field can accommodate any link from the web. 

From here you can also add child nav items that will pop up in a submenu:

The interface for adding and editing child nav items is exactly the same as a regular nav item. Note that the footer menu has no sub-menus available.
