I got this email from Google after setting up my new account:

Congratulations on creating your brand new Gmail address, ****@gmail.com. Please keep this email for your records, as it contains an important verification code that you may need should you ever encounter problems or forget your password.

You can login to your account at http://mail.google.com/

There is a verification code at the bottom, but when I use the login, it asks me to create a new account and there is no place to put in the verification code. Help!

There may be a delay between receiving your verification code and your account being available for use. Note the verification code is not required for logging in - it is in case of problems later. So use the sign in details you chose when setting up the account.
