Your screenshot is showing the expense accounts in your book.

account in the wrong spot. Have you looked under Assets and then Current
If this answers your question I would suggest to read up on double-entry
accounting or study our excellent Tutorial and Concepts Guide to better
understand how gnucash organizes your transactions. If the double-entry
concept is alien to you, gnucash will continue to confuse you.
Of course I may be estimating you totally wrongly, in which case you can
ignore the previous paragraph completely :)
