When someone asks me 'What's up?', how do I answer it?

It depends on the context, who's asking you and on the situation.

It can mean "How are you?" so you can answer it as if that were the question.

It can mean "What are you doing?" or "What are you up to?"

It can also mean "What's wrong?" or "What's the problem?" If you found someone crying or looking very upset, you might say "What's up?" and they would tell you why they're upset.
