Jorge,   the bold text you see is the heading of the paragraph.    
Paragraph is one level in a hierarchy:

\section{Heading of section} Text of the section.
\subsection{Heading of subsection} Text of the subsection.
\paragraph{Heading of paragraph} Text of the paragraph.
\subparagraph{Heading of subparagraph} Text of the subparagraph.

Normally you use line breaks between paragraphs because there is no  

You also have \part{} and \chapter{} on higher levels.  This is  
explained in any book on LaTeX.
