Not too sure what you mean by "doesnt show any color"

Do you mean you can not paint on it.

Maybe kill the selection, menu Select -> None (shift - ctrl - a)

RE: color problem
Ok, Ithink I see what you are doing.

The main drawing, as shown, has a solid white background.
Your other layers are transparent (look suspiciously empty to me, but no matter)
When you merge, the solid layer covers up all the others.

Move that white layer right down to the bottom of the layers stack, but above a base layer if you have one.

Never a good idea to merge, better to right-click in the layers dialog and make a "new from visible"

What you need to do in future is create all your drawing on transparent layers with a plain white layer at the bottom, to make your drawing easy to see.
