Beginner

Hello,
I am just starting in arduino. I think I made a mistake; when I bought my arduino(UNO rev 3), I also bought a seeedstudio touch shield(v1.0). I have loaded the adafruit library into my arduino software as that is what the seeedstudio wiki told me to do. The examples build and upload fine, but I only get a white screen on the touch shield. I was wondering if I bought the wrong shield, Or if I’m possibly doing something wrong. Thank you for your time.
