You probably created some commits in that repository, so printing out the commits log would tell you whether you're in the right one. You will need to keep track of what you've done, there's no getting around that
In your last screenshot you're creating a new repository, so to me it still looks like you're in a different one.
Ask yourself where it is and what information you need to get there. You're navigating a file tree, no different from what you might normally do with graphical file navigators. If you put something in one place, don't expect it to be somewhere else. If you created something earlier, don't expect creating another to result in somehow ending up in the one you created previously somewhere else.
If you created a repository earlier, then getting back into it isn't going to involve creating another repository. (And you don't need me to figure that out) So you should rule that out entirely. How does one find something in a file system? How about search tools? What are you looking for? How about a .git directory, or some file that jekyll creates.
