Something doesn't look right, like something is missing. You may want to look at a similar bike to get a better visual as to proper configuration.

You may have buckled your wheel if its a spoked type ! If you have buy a spoke key and tighten the spokes opposite the buckle if the buckle goes over to the left stop wheel and tighten spoke that lie on the right of the rim fairly easy if your rim is not to badly damaged..... you will have to keep on tinkering to true the wheel also check your spoke are tight before starting as i have seen spokes just loosen for no reason.......hope this helps.

SOURCE: Men Mountain Bike (26"): How to adjust tention on the rear brakes...

Your bike likely has linear pull brakes so you will need to a. loosen the pinch bolt that holds the brake cable to the noodle (down at the wheel). You then pinch the brake in towards the rim with your hand until it's almost touching and then retighten the cable. You can then do some fine adjustment on how close the brake pads are the rim with the adjusting nuts up at the levers.

Don't use a screw driver. That means you have hydrolic brakes. Take it to a bike shop. It is relatively difficult to open w/o damage it is easy to damage. Also, pick up some disk brake spacers that you put in when you remove the wheel to prevent just this problem.

Dont know how to put the rear shock back onto bike

Diagrams are available in the website under the support tab. Just note the you have to remove the crank on the right side to get to the nut that holds the lower eyelet into the frame (torque nut (not the bolt) to 120in/lbs with a torque wrench.... yes you have to use the torque wrench.... Push the bottm bolt in first then the top one then tighten both to 120in/lbs. The brain hose should bend under the main pivot nut and then inside the rear triangle and brake hose. Torque the bolts to 70in/lbs. Go ride!
