Hi. Welcome to FreeBSD!
By default FreeBSD takes the minimalistic approach of not installing
possibly unneeded dependencies, so this is why there is no X server
and window manager by default. To install some, you should read the
particularly the Chapters 4 and 5. Or you could always install PC-BSD,
which is based on FreeBSD and which installs and configure X and a
window manager by default.
