git commit -m giving me this: nothing to commit, working directory clean

I get this: On branch master Your branch is ahead of 'origin/master' by 2 commits. (use "git push" to publish your local commits) nothing to commit, working directory clean

I deleted the old repo because it wasn't being updated with my files. So i deleted the old repo and made a new one attempting to git commit it and when i do: git remote add origin https://github.com/yasirnali/alitreebook.git
