Experimenting with the software and following youtube tutorials is the best way to start until you build up enough of a vocabulary to ask the right questions and gather the relevant learning material. The reason I'm being snide is because you asked a really silly question. You might as well have asked "how do I make music?" in a thread that is more so geared towards technical problems in FL studio.
That said, besides learning the program more (which you obviously dont know like you said you did), the process of creating a "beat" (which im guessing you mean producing a song) is going to require audio core knowledge. Start by learning the science behind every knob you turn(google and youtube will be your best friend), then move on to core concepts of use from literature such as the "Mixing Engineers Handbook" or even simpler "Computer Music for Dummies."
Once you get to that point you'll know where you need to go or learn from there.
Most importantly, just experiment and make stuff. Figure it out on your own until you are more comfortable with it, then start studying it via internet/books.
That is unless you arent serious about this at all, which 99% of guys comin in saying "how do i make beats yo?" are not.
