So I just started on my baking journey, with my first attempt being pita bread. Recipe calls for 1 cup of flour, which for my continence, I converted to 136 grams. My question is

1. So is it 136g of sifted flour or do I sift it after measuring out 136g of flour?
2. Does it matter?
3. For example, if recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of flour, do I “compress” out a tablespoon or do I just use a tablespoon to scoop out loose flour and it’s whatever amount the spoon can “pile”?

As a beginner I’m so confused! Any tips regarding baking measurements would be greatly appreciated
