Pentax K7 external mic volume

Hello all. Shooting some video with my K7 and using a hotshoe mounted Rode mic. Stupid question maybe, but how do I adjust the sound on the camera? I see the speaker icon but not sure where to adjust the volume for the mic when recording.

Also, anyone else get background noise from external mic? There seems to be a low white noise on video. Any suggestions on how to work around this I appreciate it.

If anyone has worked with this mic feel free to give me pointers for optimal sound. I know there is Gain settings but not sure of the best setting overall.

Thanks so much!
