By metal clips, do you mean on the back sides of the calipers? These are the anti-rattle springs. To inspect the pads remove the two small screws holding this spring and under there is a central pin held by a sping clip. Pull the clip and pin and the pads can be removed for inspection. re- install in reverse order.
The little red dot should go to the "heavy" spot on the rim which often is NOT at the valve stem. On my front it is 4" away from the stem and on the rear 2" away.
