Whenever you sync your iPhone to your MB, iTunes first creates a backup automatically.
You'll need to open iTunes with your iPhone connected (wired or wirelessly if you have iOS 5.x). From the main screen you can select to have your backups on your Mac or iCloud.

If by "back up" you actually mean "sync" contacts to your MB, then on the main screen for your phone in iTunes go to the Info tab and select what exactly you want synced from your phone to your MB and click on "Sync" at the bottom right.

16GB iPhone 5, 64GB Wi-Fi only iPad 1st Gen.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.
