Hey fellas. Newbie here, just bought my first drum set, I was assembling the set and I saw some goo like thing in the container shown also those other two metal pieces that I have no idea what they are. Any clues?

The containers look like grease for the lugs. The 2 little square topped pieces go inside of the lugs that mount on the sides of the drums. They might be spares. This is one of the ways they can be put together, it might vary between manufactures.

I thought they might be spacers, I was just confused as to why only two came with the set. Is it a good idea to grease the lugs? I will be tuning the set for the first time with a drum dial this weekend.
