Newbie - trying to deploy site - error page not found

Hi Everyone,

I am completely new here, and new to web hosting as well.
I am busy studying and creating a portfolio using HTML and CSS - I added these to my GitHub repository and then deployed it with Netlify.
When I try to open the site, it gives me an error -

"Page Not Found

Looks like you’ve followed a broken link or entered a URL that doesn’t exist on this site.

If this is your site, and you weren’t expecting a 404 for this path, please visit Netlify’s “page not found” support guide for troubleshooting tips."
