This is just because of the pawl springs being "too strong" so that just the weight of the driver and chain is not enough to allow it to freewheel...if it freewheels fine when you're on the bike, don't worry too much about it...it should go away after it gets more broken in.

I do stuff and I'm not good at it.

Yes. Usually a tight chain is the culprit on something like that...when cassettes get old it happens too. Loosen your chain a bit, and tighten down your bottom bracket some more and that should put a stop to it.

Grease the driver. Tibug is possibly right on this one. The cassette may need to be broken it, just go pedal really fast a lot and coast.
