I don't use the same desktop as you, so my advice might be wrong. But
it seems to me that you clicked on one of the widgets (or applets, among
other names) that live in the panel, rather than clicking on the panel
itself . It can be tricky to find a spot on the panel that is not
occupied by a widget, but once you find one you should get the panel

Or - better idea yet - drag the panel to the left (or right) of the
screen and make it wide enough to hold all the widgets that you want.
This will leave you with nothing at the top and bottom, giving you
maximum vertical real estate.

Or even better idea - install Xubuntu, and then move the panel to the
left or right.
