Legal Question in Civil Rights Law in Iowa

I am pulled over by a trooper on the interstate in Iowa. He asks to see my license and reg and insurance. I comply. Then he asks me to step back to his vehicle. Do I have to comply? He has not informed me I am under arrest, or the reason for the stop. Am I free to go or not? He is just fishing, and I don't want to play his game. What do I do?
