How do I use indexes?

I’ve had an index named ‘id’ for a long time. But it seems no matter how I set it up, have tried different ways multiple times, its not being used and my bill is through the roof. But the only way to reduce the bill is using the indexes but I can’t figure out how to switch the index being used.
