Auto-trace color select not working

Hi,

Im having issues using Auto-trace, Itried using BMP, JPG and PNG but none of them seem to work:

 

This is the problem:

 

Once I'm setting up auto-trace it "greyes out" the image (it should be black on white) and then if i use the color selection tool anywhere I click (as you can see the cursor is on the black part of the image) the color selected is still white. If i click "begin trace" it will trace the WHITE part (excluding the black) and gives me a square with a clef cut-out but i want the inverse of that (the black part).

And It's getting frustrating since all the tutorials on using it just simply click the color and it selects it
