Flat bench is a good place to start and to learn proper form, but incline and decline are a good way to improve over-all pec development. Given that you have just started,your chest is responding to flat bench really well, but soon enough your muscles will get to a point of stagnation and that "new stimulus" will no longer be newm, your muscles will adapt. As your progress levels out add in decline and incline movements (either bench or bumbell presses) to hit your muslces with fresh new angles and stresses. The lower rep scheme may be working for you for now, but I'd look into starting 10-12 rep sets to give your muscles that extra burn, especially as you are learning the new movements, form comes before weight always.
