Firstly Welcome !
We are happy to hear that you are interested in working on GCC.
There is always plenty to do in a project of the size and the age of
GCC - you could start reading the web pages and wiki pages and start
looking at some of the bugs in bugzilla even gardening them to figure
out what is still relevant and what is valid.
If you are looking to contribute to GCC in terms of code , it would be
good if you started with reading https://gcc.gnu.org/contribute.html
and sorting out your legal approvals in terms of copyright assignments
etc and what sorts of things are expected in the community with
respect to patches.
There are a few getting started guides in the wiki
(http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki - Look for tutorials) which can help you get
started in terms of reading up on the internals, there are a few Easy
hacks listed in the wiki page here https://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/EasyHacks
