Photograph of a pink sunrise came out grey
Shooting, with a lens pointing to the sun is always risky for the camera. It could damage the sensor. But with a ND filter, perhaps this could. Then when you are shooting in automatic and just jpg, the camera will try to set the white balance, so the sun comes out bright white. It was the brightest spot in the frame. If you shot RAW you could be better off, because the camera did not change anything to the white balance in rte RAW picture. At least you would be able to restore the colour in a photo editor program like Lightroom or Photoshop RAW.
In extreem light conditions, never use the camera in auto. Only when the camera offers scene mode for that condition, you could use that.

I have an olympus e510.when i take pics inside or
That's because you are using auto focus. That system needs light to actually focus. When it's lacking enough light it uses the build in flash to create enough contrast to focus the objective.
- change to manual focus (mf)
- mount a external flash: then a different method to focus is used
- use a small pocket lamp (the light it produces fades away in the flash)

1) Are you trying to use "Live View" to focus?
If so you are using a less sensitive auto focus mode. One of the benefits of using a DSLR is that it can use more sensitive auto-focus systems than Point

Photos very grainy. Have quality
Is it a pocket camera where the lens in internal? that would explain some of it.
Go into your menu and look up ISO and make sure its not set to anything above 400 if you are worried about digital grain or noise.
for the sharpest image you should have it set to the lowest speed setting.
hope that helps,
