i followed cloudflare setup tutorial, but in settings on their page im getting notified, that ‘An A, AAAA, CNAME, or MX record is pointed to your origin server exposing your origin IP address.’

but how can i point A record to another IP when my droplet has just one?

In the CloudFlare DNS panel there is a cloud icon on the far right for each record that determines whether CloudFlare acts as a proxy for that subdomain/address. If it is selected then your droplet’s IP address will be hidden from visitors. If it is disabled the DNS record just points directly to your IP.
