Having the robot figure out where it is on startup is known as the "kidnapped robot problem" in robotics. AMCL does not solve it, so you'll have to set the pose manually or find a different localization package that does solve this problem.

You can set the robot's pose manually using the "2D Pose Estimate" tool in rviz.
