Is there any websites or anything that can tell me what the sun looks like currently so I can know when to go out and look? The first time I went out with my new solar filter I didn't see any sunspots.

This one is also a part of the GONG (Global Oscillation Network Group) site, which updates as you watch - a good bookmark:

EDIT: Sorry, just realised you're looking for sunspots. This is H-alpha.

Just  worthy of  a mention is skytech x  planaterium software that can be set up  very easily so the sun shows  current  view of the face from your location  so  current sunspots can be viewed
