to me it seems you expect the toolbar and brushes dock to the left side
docked. To achieve this, toggle Windows/Single Window Mode.
The tabs on the upper right side will appear when there's more than one
image open. To see them simply open or create another file.
Don't mind the dark theme of your GIMP vs. the fawn one from the
tutorial. That's no error. If you don't like it, you can choose another
theme in Edit/Preferences/Theme.
BTW: The subject 'GIMP opening screen' is a bit misleading, because it
lets one think of the splash screen with the progress bar. To be more
precise, you could for instance use 'GIMP screen after opening a file'
next time ;-)
