Help How to get rid of start screen on LG

There is a weird screen on my new phone it has a vertical side with icons and then its like a lock screen. What is this and how do I make it go away. Also, the phone has a weird thing that looks like a square with dots on it that you have to tap to get to your apps. I'm sure that can be changed. Can anyone help?
