#1 rule for attacking in the guard is to control the posture , you have nothing if your not controlling your opponents posture, after that you can start attacking. When you first start attacking in the guard go for the basics like armbars and triangles , don't get discouraged if you can't nail one of them your first times rolling , no one ever starts off nailing things all over the place as a white belt , the only way to learn how to do the techniques properly is to drill them and go for them when rolling , if your opponent gets past your triangle attempt dont worry about it, its the attempt that counts and you will learn from it. On another thing if you break your opponent down and you know he is going to posture back up as soon as you release him why not follow him up for hip bump sweep, or pretend to go for a gi choke then trap his elbow to ur stomach giving you a shot at an armbar, thinking about little moves like this will really improve your guard game . good luck out there
