    If you need to ask what to upgrade do not upgrade anything a new bike. Everyone rides differently.

    Different things work wel for different people.

    Personally I would put a powerlink on the chain though. It is cheap and it helps with cleanup and mainteance IMO.

    Good bike.

    What is good about - it's a 29er

    What is bad about it - it's a 29er.

    Enjoy the ride.

    I agree on the immediate introduction of a removable link. Other than that, I would first spend some time on the bike before soliciting suggestions for upgrades. It's a very personal thing. Personally get to know your bike first before making a decision on what is worth upgrading.
