I know this can be a bit confusing, but we would like to make it easier for you. The URL of your sitemap is:

Once you have verified your site, in Google Webmaster:
1) Click on the "Sitemaps" link in the menu on the left of your dashboard.
2) Click on the "Add Sitemap" link
3) Click on the drop down arrow next to the "choose type" box and select the "Add General Sitemap" option
You will then be given an option to submit a Sitemap using three options. Select the third one and type in "sitemap.xml" in the box provided.

I hope this helps. If you have any questions please let us know.
