Ceiling fan install help

Hi everyone, I recently bought a new home and the builder placed ceiling fan rough ins throughout the home. I took the cover off to install a ceiling fan and the outlet box I'm confused on. The bracket the fan came with doesnt line up with the screws. The screws are not centered they are at the end of the box. My question is can this be used to install a fan? Can I drill two holes in the center of the outlet box for the mounting bracket Any information is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forums! Those two screws partially screwed in near the wires are just in a holder for shipping. Remove them and place them across from each other at the apex of the large circle. Actually the left black line didn't go far enough.
