I'm in a learnership. I get paid R3,120 plus R1,500 accommodation. The total is R4,620 per month. Do I pay tax?

No, you are below the tax threshold and therefore should not pay tax assuming this is your only income.

So what action can I take because I was taxed R1,115 this month? Can I call SARS?

Please ask your employer why they took off PAYE and paid that to SARS? If they did this then you need to register as a taxpayer and file a tax return and claim the tax back.
