i recently had my rear tire replace, and this morning i noticed i have small square weights on my rim. they are very tiny, and are labeled as 1/2 ounce. what are these things? will i have problems taking them off in the future? thanks for the help.

Those are wheel balancing weights, the mechanics that put your tire on balance the wheel so it doesn't vibrate at speed.

Those are weights, they were put on when the wheel was balanced, just like on a car.
