I don't what happened but for some reason my Photoshop CC is only painting in black and white and none of the colours will show. I tried opening a new file but it does the same. For some reason it creates a channel called Gray and now nothing is colour. How do I fix this please?

Your document is in grayscale mode, where only gray values are possible.

Change the mode to RGB, CMYK, or LAB to use color.

Image->Mode->RGB

Or just create the document in RGB by setting the mode to RGB when you create the new document.

I switched it out of grayscale, but everything is still gray.

When you say "everything" is still gray, are you referring to art that was already in the document, or to color options on your brushes?
