Where is my order history?

I just installed MT4 for the first time and playing with it using demo account.

A few questions.

1. I placed GBPUSD order having volume 0.01 by clicking on "Buy by Market" button. Now how do I see at what price did I buy this? Like some sort of order history.

2. I didn't enter any value for "Stop loss" and "Take Profit". What difference does these two make?

3. When I click on "Buy by Market", does it buy immediately or it takes time to place an actual order?

Screenshot attached.
