I bought a used smartphone. Its not rooted ;I checked with a couple of apps. I reset the phone to factory condition.  

Mbytes reports two items android/trojan.Becuro and android/pup.adware.air push.HFA.  When I try to remove them mob says play store then unsuccessful.  can these be a security threat? I can't see them in all apps.

 Android.Becuro is a Trojan horse for Android devices that downloads potentially malicious files onto the compromised device.
Android package file
The Trojan may arrive as a package with the following characteristics:

Package name: com.cube.activity
Version: 1.0
Name: android.cube


Installation
Once installed, the application does not display an icon.


Note: Virus definitions dated May 13, 2015 or earlier detect this threat as Android.Becur. Android/AirPush is an android app that may potentially be adware or may compromise your personal information. These safety risks should be considered before installing an app detected as Android/AirPush.

OK thanks. I'll  be vigilant about installing anything. I used 360 security which also found these bugs and also had means of locating and disabling them, which I did.
