That is the bottom of the screen. You need to unscrew the two screws on each side of the charging port. You need a screwdriver called a pentalobe screwdriver and it should come in the screen package. Slowly open the screen from the bottom and unhook the home button. DON'T OPEN IT QUICKLY OR YOU WILL TEAR THE CABLE. Once it's unhooked unscrew the battery cover and disconnect the battery. Then unscrew the screen connection cover and disconnect the screen. You will need to change the earpiece speaker and front camera and home button

I unscrewed the pentalobe screws and it still doesnt do anything.

You will have to pry up the screen. Do it from the bottom left side while the phone is facing up about half way between the home button and the corner. Don't use anything metal, use a plastic spugger. AND REMEMBER THE HOME BUTTON CABLE if you open it to far you will tear the cable. Watch a few videos on YouTube for screen replacement for your iPhone 5s.
