Do the English say underwear/knickers/underpants or what?

I'm Australian so most of our terms are very similar to yours.. but there's a few that confuse me.

My English friend just burst out laughing cause I sad I got gravy all over my pants. Now I know you say trousers and we say pants.

Do pants mean underwear or something? HAHA.
