to whom it may concern this, I've skecth in a plane then I click "map skecth" and select the sketch, so I can use it on the face's plane.

You can map a new sketch to a face by just selecting the face and click the "Create a new sketch" button. The map sketch to face is useful when you have an existing sketch you would like to be on a face.
