Not too long ago, I purchased an Iron Gym pull up bar with the intention of getting my upper body to look good. I know next to nothing about bodybuilding, and I thought that I could start by doing 3 sets of each exercise a number of times (pull-ups, sit-ups, push-ups, dips, and the ab strap thing), upping the amount of reps with each day, and taking a break after two days of exercise. I started by doing 3 sets of each exercise, with 6 reps in each set. I'm up to 14 reps in a set now, and it feels like I'm killing myself. I can see some results, but not as much as I'd like.
Could someone please recommend a decent workout routine for a beginner like me, using a pull up bar? Thanks a lot.

Rest for longer in between your sets. Start doing more cardio to decrease the feeling of "killing yourself". You can build strength just fine with a pull up bar, one your able too do so start doing all your exercises with one arm instead of two. The following routine works well for a body weight workout.
One-legged Squat 5x5
One-arm Push-up 5x5
One-arm chin-up 5x5
