Opened a fidelity roth IRA account

For many months, once a month, it pulled out $50 from my checking out.

This accumulated to $2500, the minimum to start investing (via fidelity).

I bought into the fidelity 500 index fund.

I've made about $100 in a couple weeks doing absolutely nothing.

I'm sure the market will drop at some point. Can't be discouraged, but must invest wisely.

Would recommend.

Good to always remember that you own "shares" of a fund or stock, that happen to be worth a particular dollar value at any given point in time; you only "lose money" if a) you sell below what you bought it for (and IMO if you sell it for less appreciation than the risk-free rate) or b) the company (stock) or mutual fund company (fund) goes bankrupt (the latter highly unlikely).
