1. Close all files, including the default one.
2. Go to menu: Edit-> colors
3. Select a color set from the drop down window in the right hand 
column. My favorite is Scribus Open Office (CMYK)
4. If you need them, create additional colors in that color set. For 
example I like a "rich black" that has a CMYK of 40 40 30 100 to use 
for the POD printer LSI.

You might find the Scibus Manual and also the wiki very helpful.
