You do want to save. Any time you are working with video, you want to save regularly. So, save the project, then add the clip.
Are you trying to import a second clip, or add a second clip to the timeline?

I think the poster is clicking on new project select movie on the left rather than import media on the right

Ah, could be. I guess its worth asking, Exactly what process are you using to add a new clip? To import a new clip into the existing project, you would use the Import command in the file menu. To create a new project with a different clip, you would use one of the New Project commands. to add another clip to the timeline, you would set the in and out points in the Toolbox preview, then drag the clip onto the timeline.
If you can give is some more detail regarding exactly what you are trying to do, and how you are trying to do it, we can point you in the correct direction.

I have a mac so it might be a little different then u think. just putting that out there. This is what I do, I open a project then it comes up, after that I go up to file and open, and then I look for video and then I click it and it says do u want to save. if I do press save then it ONLY brings up that video and not not the previous one. It just simply gets rid of it. please help guys. thank you. the thing im trying to do with two videos is fly or force jump. I know how to do it. I just cant get two videos on the TIMELINE.

If you are clicking open new project or open new video it will replace it with the old one. To use a second clip or ore with the existing video you need to select the import option.

Import. Not important, Import. Though I guess it is important as well. If you want to import a new piece of media into an existing project, you use the Import Media command. Keep in mind that EffectsLab isn't a compositing application, so what you can do with multiple video clips is pretty limited.
Also, I strongly encourage you to take a bit of time to examine the video tutorials,
which will help you get familiar with the fundamental basics of how the program works. Importing video is about as basic as it gets, so as you get into more advanced processes you might want to keep that link handy in case you run into further troubles.
