I am new to Illustrator. I can't fill the curve shape with color in Illustrator. I want to fill the whole curve shape with the color. How can I do this?

I want to fill this whole curve with blue shade.

As Scott has suggested in his comment, close the path to create a completely enclosed shape, using the Pen Tool. Holding down Shift as you click and drag constrains the angles to horizontal and vertical. Enabling Smart Guides allows you to line everything up.
