    The lock with an arrow means that you've locked the rotation of the iPad (it won't move to portrait (or landscape when you tilt it). To remove that lock (if you wish), double press the Home button to reveal the bottom bar. Then, swipe to the right to reveal from the left. The far left icon is your rotation lock. You can press it to toggle it on or off.

    The arrow pointing to the right tells you that some app you've used has used the Location services of the iPad. It just a notification.

    Hope this helps.
