nononono thats the truss rod. don't go messing with that if you don't know what your doing. just 'behind' the pickups, where the strings go through, is the bridge...there's two hex screws that you need to adjust.

It sounds to me as if you're pretty new to guitar?

Take it to a guitar shop, get it set up, and look up youtube videos showing how to adjust the action, change the intonation, and other things like that.

If it's a really cheap guitar, they'll go out of tune much more often than a high-end guitar, but a decent set-up should fix that to an extent.
Best of luck!

Hmm...
I said that because you were unsure about what the saddles were, what the truss road is etc.
I'd still recommend taking it to get set up.
Did you change string gauge recently?
