Press the following to start creating your own workflow for this document library.
Then press the second option add a new workflow. When you have done this you will go thru to the next screen.
As you can see i already created a simple workflow for 2 persons who need to give their approval.
TIP I always start with the task with a approval notification and a email. i do this so the user who uploaded the document will be able to edit the document and the user will get a Email with the info that his document is waiting for approval.
 
When you are creating you own workflow you can just pick some of the icons on the left and drag them into the working field. Don’t forget to config the icons you dragged to the editing field.  You can do this by pushing the small arrow on the top right of the Icon.

When you have a little workflow your flow always needs to end with a status change (End status machine).
This last option will end the flow (This prevents you get any loops and people will get spammed).

When you’re done editing you can save your flow and publish it to you document library.
