I was wondering what the red bottuns on the thrust levlers were for.

They could be to select "go-around" mode. I've seen two other a/c types with GA switches on the thrust levers.

Usually the TOGA button is in the middle of the thrust levers on the front side.... Those are probably the auto-throttle disconnect buttons.

it's that, it's to disengage autothrottle mode.

Yes it's the autothrust disconnect switch and if it's pushed for longer then 15 seconds,you won't be able to activate it for the rest of the flight.
