You have to run the AMCL package. That will use the input from the lidar and provide you the estimated pose.

Theoretically you can estimate your pose using lidar data. That is a set of techniques called visual odometry. But it's fairly complicated and laborious task. There are a few companies (e.g. whose business is in essence localization based on lidar (and other sensors reading).

Getting your position based on GPS+IMU would be way easier to start with.
