This and the fact that you said you're a beginner means you're not use to skates, or skating, so stick with it and you'll eventually get the hang of it.
Also sounds like your skates aren't tied tight enough, or are too big for you.
As for the arches, get out the blow dryer, some newspaper to put on the floor, or if you have skate guards even better. Warm your skates up with the blow dryer, stick them on and tie them on tight, or how you like to have your skates and the skate will mold to your feet.
