Vlosaloty, I'll be happy to help figure this out so that's it's not difficult for you to use your phone. The iPhone has a proximity sensor that recognizes when your face or other object is against the screen. Do you have a case or anything covering the sensor (near the earpiece)? Try wiping the screen. Also reset the phone by pressing and holding the Power & Sleep/Wake buttons for 10 seconds until the Apple pops up.

Let me know if you're still having issues.
