Hi, recently (1 day ago) bought myself a brand new PC, I have Kingston HyperX DDR4 3200 C16 2x8GB , I've paid extra cash for it, because of the 3200 frequency, I have Asus ROG Strix B450-F Gaming motherboard which supports 3200 RAM and an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X which is also supporting 3200 RAM, so, I want to make the most of it, unfortunately, my RAM runs on 2400, I've seen this in bios and in some bench (UserBenchmark).

How can I make it run at 3200? Should I just change it in bios to 3200? I am really a novice in "overclocking". Thanks!

Yes, if your bios and mobo has XMP, you should just be able to change the DRAM frequency to 3200MHz
Ok, I've changed it to 3200 and it runs at 3200, buuuut... I've heard that there's a thing where you've might be getting random BSOD's (because of the overclocking), is this true? Should I be worried?

No, overclocking over XMP is safest way. XMP is not your classic OC. XMP is just instructions (written in RAM control chip) to BIOS to set memory to it's best speed and settings that go with it.
