Workbench is just a frontend GUI client app for communicating with a MySQL server, it won't do anything unless it has a MySQL instance to communicate with, so you also need to download and install MySQL server.

Workbench is a complicated beast because its job is to communicate with and manage an even more complicated beast, a relational database management server, which MySQL is. This isn't like learning how to run a word processor or a spreadsheet. You need to do some reading about RDBMSes and what they do, then read the opening sections of the MySQL manual, then download MySQL server from https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer/ and follow the manual's installation instructions.
