I Just Started My Job–Now How Do I Change It?

I just started a new job (2 weeks ago) and I really don’t like it. It is a large company with lots of departments. I want to move into another department to see if I would like a different position more. I don’t know how to go about this. Should I go to the Human Resource Mgr and inquire about moving? I’m afraid that she is going to tell my manager and that they might fire me over the inquiry. Please let me know how to handle this. I’m currently keeping my eye out for job openings at other companies, but if possible I would like to stay at this company. And just to add: they have no job board or anything for me to look at to even see if there are openings at other departments. Thanks
