Well done on starting to get to know your bike :)

FWIW, the bit of plastic inside the wheel rim is called "rim tape". it prevents the rough bits where the spokes attach to the rim from causing punctures. Also, rather than replacing your tube every time you have a puncture, I recommend getting some of these. They're real easy to use, and they seem to work - at least they have for me.
