A quick way to see if your image is more or less properly exposed is to used a card that is half white and half black. When looking at the histogram both ends should be within the display.

Or adjust the exposure compensation for images with auto exposure. Some allow a +/-5EV range.

Check your manual for tips on using the camera for images that do not use automatic exposure control or setting the EV range.
I would stay away from changing ISO. Higher ISOs usually mean a grainier picture. Always shoot with the lowest ISO you can. If you need more light, lengthen your exposure.
