If you are flying at FL275 and the control center tells you to climb to FL300, what does that mean and what does the pilot have to do to meet that direction from the ATC?

It means that the pilot must climb the aircraft from FL275 (27500 feet) up to FL300 (30000 feet) and then continue flying at that level. The pilot will read back the instruction to ATC, and then do it.
