Every time you open an image in Photoshop it is locked. You can see the small  icon with a lock in the layers palette .

When the layer is locked you can not apply changes directly to the layer.

You can unlock it by double-clicking on the background layer in the layers palette, or by going to the menu: Layer > New > Layer from Background.

Once you unlock it you can see a window that ask you for a layer’s name. It is not necessary to give it one unless you want it. Then click OK.
