What an interesting question. In my personal opinion, I think the first question that would have been asked by the first inhabitants on planet earth would be the question of everything came to be.

Who created everything, what's method or instruments were used, what world is this etc.

It would be basically a barrage of questions, questioning the existence of everything and how it came to be, questioning the forces and powers that created such things, why animals are different etc.

I think the first question to ever have been asked by a person would have been a contemplative one. A type of a question that you ask yourself because it is too personal and important to be asked of any other person. 

I actually have a top 5 list of questions that I think might have been some of the first questions to  have been asked. Here they are:

1. What should I do with my life? 

2. What is the purpose of all this pain and struggle?

3. Where is my next source of food/water?

4. Should I continue or just quit?

5. Am I going to get killed here?

I think that these questions are so instinctive for any higher form of sentience that they would have been asked, even if the person didn't ask them intentionally of themselves.

I would have to assume it was something tot he effect of "can I eat this" or "why is it so cold/ hot" .  The question would have had to have been pretty basic as the needs were pretty basic back then also.

So the first molecule went to the second molecule.

"Want to couple?"

He said, and winked.

And thus life was born!

I do not know about prehistoric man but if it were me the first question asked would be "can I eat this? Will it kill me" assuming it was a man. If it was a woman I would think something like "does this mammoth skin dress make my butt look big?
