The bug triage wiki is here:

Anyone can confirm a bug, you don't need to wait for others if you know it's an issue. I'd probably wait to assign it to myself until I was actually working a patch (like I plan on pushing the change up for review that day). Once you push the change up to gerrit the bug will be automatically assigned to you anyway, so you could also hold off on assigning it to yourself if you need some time to work on it first.

In theory, you can assign the bug to yourself and fix it. Depending on the bug, you may need to file also a spec before you can start coding. Edit the question and add the URL to the bug itself so I can be more precise.
