Question about Boot Camp Lesson [Buy and Hold / Equities]

Hi everyone!. I am a beginner and taking the Boot Camp Lesson.

if not self.Portfolio.Invested:
            self.MarketOrder("IWM", 100)
            self.Debug( str(self.Portfolio["IWM"]. AveragePrice))

I don't understand the "if not" part and what is self.Debug.

Thank you!

"if not self.Portfolio.Invested:" means the the following code tabbed underneath it will only run if you're currently not holding any investments.

"self.Debug" will print out that data to your log so you can review it and see at what price you bought the 100 shares of IWM
