Sounds like it is a chain guard. Chain guards are cosmetic to a bicycle and do not affect the functionality of a bicycle being operational. You will probably be just fine without it. In fact, you never see a bike used for racing with a chain guard, it's just extra weight to haul around.
Most beach cruisers have a chain guard. There is always a slight "wobble" of the front chain ring, check to make sure the chain isn't slapping the chain guard. The chain guard can be adjusted. The chain also might have loose tension causing it to bounce around just enough to hit the chain guard. The opposite may be true, if the chain is too tight, you could be getting a popping sound at certain points on the chain as it messes with the gear teeth, in this case loosen the chain slightly to put a little slack in it.
The chain guard is usually fastened to the seat tube of the bike (the frame tube coming up from the pedal area to the seat) with a plastic band. If this band is broken or missing, and there is excessive play in the chain guard, I suggest removing it entirely or returning the bike as it may be a hazard.
Examine the top of the chain guard where it mounts to the bicycle. Loosen the fasteners enough to slide the chain guard in and out. Adjust it so it doesn't hit the crank or rub on the chain and tighten the fasteners back down.
see if theres a master link on the chain and take off from that way you dont have to take off the guard. the master link will look diffrent from all the other links and can normally be removed with a screwdriver
