Hi Martha;
No, this is not just a muddle through situation. Try to start reading the 
literature surrounding your thesis topic. If you're not sure where to begin, 
try journals that specialize in review articles to get a feel for your areas of 
interest. Your supervisor and any one who has been supervised by this person 
(your lab mates) should also be able to help with suggestions, but don't 
forget to get the papers that have recently been published by your lab. Good
