I get a message that says my phone has not been backed up. It has to be plugged in and connected to wifi. I have done this manually before but cannot find it in settings now. I can meet the criteria of wifi and plugged in now. Please tell me where it is.?
I am running 6.1.4 ios and an I5

You can choose between backing up to your computer and backing up to iCloud. You've selected iCloud, but you can change that if you want. The setting is in iTunes on the computer. If you want to stick with iCloud, make sure WiFi is on and then go to Settings > iCloud > Storage and Backup > Backup now. It will do automatic daily backups after that whenever you're on WiFi.

iCloud backup settings are located in Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup.
