Put the image file on desktop,
Start gimp, drag the image file usign mouse and drop it over the main window of gimp, gimp will open it.
Now select continous region selction tool, seems like a magic stick, shown in attached imge 1.
Now click the region of your image which is to be filled, gimp will select the region until it does not find other color within specified region see image 2.
Then, double click the color selection, a dialog will appear see image3, change the color to desired,
now drag the color over the image and the selected region is filled.
I hope it helps

Filters --> Colors --> Color to Alpha may help you get rid of all the white in your image to just leave the black regions. This will only work well if you have PURE white surrounding your scan though.
I have found that doing some birghtness adjustments using the curves function (Layers --> Colors --> Curves) first can often give you the straight black and white image needed to run the Color to Alpha filter.
It usually is somewhat fiddly though and requires some brushwork to get a clean image.
I'll see if I can write a tutorial about this one day.
