Next option. Did you roll it up out of the way? Check the bottom of the screen: left or right. I don't know where gnome will put it. Do you see a rectangular button with an arrow on it? Click on it to un-roll the tray.
If that fails, right-click on the desktop. In the pop-up menu, look for anything to do with the panel, and start trying options.
