Hi, and welcome! In answer to your question, it is my opinion that yes, using both methods is confusing for a puppy. I know many people use the potty pads, but I personally don't advocate them, as you're basically telling your puppy it's OK to go potty in the house.

Be patient with your new pup, especially in the beginning when the bladder is still small and under developed. Taking he/she out every hour will be necessary in the beginning, but the time between going out will gradually increase as he/she gets older.

BTW...is your new puppy a male or a female? Any name picked out yet? Would love to see pictures if you have any!
