Its been a while since I've had either of my 50X1s,  but IIRC t's pretty simple..

First - read the manual and familiarize yourself with how the menu system works - failure to do this part will result in much confuckulation and rage. Optionally you could watch some youtube videos about how to use the menu system for the 50X1 or a UV-5R, since the menus are virtually the same.

Then, select the channel that you want to put the PL code on, go to the menu option for CTCSS tones, select the code from the list, save it, and enjoy.

Another option would be use use your computer and the CHIRP software which in many ways is easier since it's almost self-explanatory on the screen after learning how to use CHIRP.

The main menu items for PL (aka CTCSS) tones are T-CTCS and R-CTCS. Hit the menu button to select that item, turn the channel knob to scroll through, and press the menu button again to confirm.
