You can upload your own logo in the "Logo and top menu" section of your Theme editor. To get to your Theme editor, go to the "Design & Assets -> Theme editor" section of your store's Toolbox.

You should upload a transparent PNG of your logo to get it looking great... otherwise it will be in a big white box! The theme editor will resize the logo for you when you upload it, but you will get a much better result if you resize your logo before uploading it.
