Push to remote repository

Hi i am new to using a Gitlab for source control.
I want to push my files into a remote repository.
Below are the steps that i have followed.

I created an empty private repository on Gitlab.
1)I cloned the repository to a local folder on my lsf using git clone.
2)I created a new branch -> test1
3)created a new file -> Jenkinsfile.txt and updated its contents.
4)git reset HEAD
5)git add Jenkinsfile
6)git commit -m “initial”
7)git checkout master
8)git merge test1

This is the final status.
$git status

On branch master

Your branch is ahead of ‘origin/master’ by 1 commit.

(use “git push” to publish your local commits)

nothing to commit, working directory clean

till here I faced no problem. I assume that I have merged the branch successfully.
Now I want to push this on the remote repository.
How do I do it?

You can perform what the git status output indicates.

When your local changes are ready, you can run git push (or git push origin master more formally) to send them to GitLab.
