Your wording is very confusing or perhaps you haven't stated
your problem quite right. When you say you "ask for x[[1]]" what
does that mean if not entering x[[1]] somewhere? And if that is
what you mean, then since

In[14]:= x = {2, 7};

In[15]:= x[[1]]

Out[15]= 2

then there is something wrong with what you wrote above.

Generally, it is better to post some code to eliminate this kind
of confusion.
