Go to Path Operations in the tool options bar and try the different options.

 

Items under the Select menu are for when you have a Selection made with, for example, the Lasso Tool, which gives you the "marching ants"

"Go to Path Operations in the tool options bar and try the different options."

Do not forget to click on vector mask before changing path operations and ensure path is selected.

Hi!

Along with what Jeff said above, you can turn your path into a selection and then the Inverse Selection option would be available under the Select menu. Go to the Paths Panel, and click the "Make Selection" icon at the bottom to turn it into a Selection.
