When Mathematica returns what you typed as input unevaluated, it is almost always becuase the function you asked to be evaluated is not defined yet.

You say, you "loaded the Graphices`PlotField` lib" but did not show how you did this. This is most likely the source of your problem. When I do

In[1]:=
<< "Graphics`PlotField`"; 
PlotVectorField[{Sin[x], Cos[y]}, {x, 0, Pi}, {y, 0, Pi}];

I get the expected graphic
