I am using QGIS and am a relatively new user so don't know much about the programme.

    Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour to learn about our focussed Q&A format. I recommend not thinking about GIS SE as being some sort of online GIS tutor. For your questions to be answered here they should as much as possible describe not just what you want to do, but precisely what you have tried and where you are stuck trying that.

You can create 2 km buffer from your polygons and then use select by location tool to find interesting points
