The default first heading level is "Heading 1"; there is no "H1" by 
default. Have you perhaps inherited this document from an HTML one?

Probably not.

The table of contents facility allows ten levels of headings, and 
these are related by default to the paragraph styles "Heading 1" to 
Heading 10". But this can be configured, even to use custom styles, 
and it may be that you have done this, using a custom H1 style 
amongst others. If you do this, you need to set the associations 
between heading levels and paragraph styles. You can do this - and in 
any case make any corrections - at Tools | Outline Numbering... | 
Numbering. Select each level in the Level column and its appropriate 
corresponding paragraph style from the drop-down list. The 
implication is that you currently don't have your first heading 
paragraph style anywhere in the list.

I trust this helps.
