Nikon 50mm 1.8g question

I have a lingering question, that has been nagging me and I cannot get a straight answer or just not understanding info from the internet. I was hoping someone here can answer that question.

I have nikon 50mm 1.8g lens and it seems to have a zoom feature. I know that it is a prime lens and you have to move around. On the lens what does the infinity to x ft. mean? Do I only use that when I set the lens to manual mode or could I use that when it's set to automatic.

I was playing around with the lens and currently have it set to auto, and it seems to take different pics when I mess with the zoom. Does changing the zoom, dictate how far away I should be away from the subject?

This is my first prime lens, so I'm just trying to use the lens correctly.
