Don't worry. You're just doing fine. The car is breaking itself in. Oh yeah, if you need to clean the black stuff off the wheels (that's brake dust), be sure to use steel wool. It comes off real quick. And if you want to go faster, don't fill up the tank too often and drive around with the engine oil level at Min (that's the lower line)on the dipstick.
You should never need second gear in regular driving. It's better to save gas and start off in third gear.
And use the handbrake to stop. It's saves wear and tear on the brake pads.
