Sunrise today - what did I do wrong?
Edit: Wanted to add that the sun really was orange that morning - it was a very unusual sky - so that also explains part of this color.

Here is an image that I used underexposure to compose. You should be using your histogram in camera as you are shooting, not only after.
Sunset After Little League by Cazillo , on Flickr
it seems to me, that you are either in A, S or P mode.
In this modes the camera adjust the exposures automatically. If you are in the A mode (aperture priority) you specify the aperture and the camera adjusts the shutter speed appropriately. So nothing changes to the resulting overall exposure.
To change your exposure (and so the histogram) you should go to the M mode (manual).
If you have then an underexposed image (the graph is more to the left) you can (for instance) change the aperture to a smaller number (larger aperture) then you will see that the exposure is raised - in other words the graph will move more to the right.
