It's probably OK.

My USB drive from Asus has two partitions. One is a normal (blank) partition which you can use as you wish, but the other shows as a read-only CD drive. Right click on that, select 'show more options' and then 'open' to see the files. If you double click on the CD drive it will probably try and run setup.exe by default. 

There is no way way to change the 'CD partition' style, I think it's set up on the USB stick at manufacture, but you can copy all of the files off of there if you wish (or use them directly from that location).
