Unfortunately you might have to settle for the content network if this is the highest you can bid per keyword.
Another possibility is that your ads are still pending review, you should at least have gotten a few impressions.
When you first setup and adword campaign it takes up to 24 hours to get it approved and running. More importantly, the ads that you have get a score based on their effectiveness and how applicable they are. So if your ads are targeted well and getting more click, over time the score will rise a bit and you should get an accurate assessment of the ads you run.
