it's probably warped a little bit....you can loosen the truss rod, but given its your first time changing strings, you might want to find someone with more experience to do that

Stop talking.

Do you mean the low E keeps pulling the bridge pin out? Hold the pin steady (and apply pressure if needed) while tightening and tuning the E string. It should form a lock and hold in place.

Another thing to try is to put a little bend into the string about 1/4 inch away from the ball. A mistake many people make when restringing an acoustic is that ball end of the string is resting on the very tip of the bridge pin as they push both down into the hole of the bridge. By putting a little bend in the string, it'll keep the ball end away from the tip as it should be. If the ball rests on the tip, when you try to tighten up the tuners the string's tension lifts both the string and pin up and out of the bridge.
