there are few choices but also depended on the track

1) rotate the rear one to the front
2) keep running the old one as sometimes it gives better lap time then the first run tire.
3) steal one or nicely take one set from your friend without him knowing it.

I usually compare the first run and second run lap time then decide if the third run and main is worth the new fresh tire. usually i have new set in main.

If they let you use a fresh set in the main, use one set for round 1 & 2 (rotating), then the 2nd set for round 3.

Don't ever rotate left to right. The car will always feel tweaked on rotated tires
