my problem is that i have two sets of the same pedals which the 2 left ones are broken, so i was wondering is i could put 2 right pedals on my bike, is there gonna be a problem, i havent tried it yet but maybe the thread is not going to matches?

No it will not work. The left is threaded counterclockwise and the right is clockwise. There is a reason that there is a left and right pedal.This is so the pedals don't screw loose when you pedal.

On your next set make sure you get sealed bearings, not ball bearings. They will last a lot longer.
