Beginner with balancing issues

Just started lifting for the first time a few weeks ago. I'm doing mainly dumbbell exercises and squats. I've noticed that for any movement involving my arms, I can do about 2-5 more reps with my right arm than for my left arm. My question is: should I do as many as I can with each arm? Or should I limit my right arm to what my left arm is doing in hopes of evening them out? Or is there some other strategy I should consider?

I guess it could depend on a few things but... Starting with your weaker side or stopping when your technique with the weak side gets slightly worse is always a good strategy.
