Push up with your right thumb so there's more pressure from the reed against your top lip and don't take too much reed in otherwise you'll have no control over the volume and that will also cause it to play flat.

But whenever you can, get a teacher sooner rather than later as you will need any bad habits you've developed to be undone.

Are you playing in an American or European style?
