Just started using VirtualBox. I have an ubuntu iso image on my usb that I can boot from. I ran ubuntu in VirtualBox in Window7 with no problem. How can I go about using Bash with Linux in VirtualBox?

It works exactly the same way as using bash on Ubuntu outside of VirtualBox. You just launch a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T should work).

Try to use this: Alt+F2, then type xterm end press Enter. The xterm program is a terminal emulator for the X Window System.
