If you are not sure how to take the cover off what do you expect to do once you do remove it? What are you looking for?

I know about electric..
caster, my friend, be very careful about what you think you know....... yes, there are 2 "hot" busses in your panel, and very well could be 3....the neutral, also. if you would explain exactly what you are planning to do in there, we will be glad to help you and guide you through the process. as far as anything "falling out", i have found mouse nests, mouse skeletons, mouse poop, etc. inside of these panels before. but, as far as electrical components falling out, the answer is "no", there shouldnt be anything in there that would "fall out".
sorry if it sounds as though we are making fun of you, because we're not. just very concerned that you may be attempting something that could be potentially disasterous for you.

please post back for any help that we can give you..

what im doing is pulling 2 12ga circuits in. Also I want to put each on wire on its own breaker ( thats a given I think ) . Im just scared s**Tless of pulling this cover off the main panel. I got it in my head now that the main panel cover is like a switch cover. nothing going to happen unless I touch smothing inside.

So far you are doing well,,, you have the right idea of putting the wires on their own breakers,, 20A ,,,, use connecters where the cable goes into the box.
