It looks like you have window surfaces but have chosen a construction for that window that is opaque. If the surfaces are meant to be opaque doors then chance sub-surface type to door. If they are meant to be windows then change the construction to one that is opaque, possibly using a simple glazing material. In particular because you are new to OpenStudio it could be good to start with a default construction set to get everything running, and then start customizing the constructions after that.
