Why are you using the History Brush Tool? 

Have you tried using the Brush Tool instead?

Yes, click on the tool just on top of the selected one, so that you get the regular Brush (B) tool. AFAIK The History Brush only works on layers, not layer masks, it is used to paint a previous state of the image into the current one: https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/photoshop/using/tool-techniques/history-brush-tool.html
