Go to Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars->Accounts, and add your Google account there.
You can then add items to the Google specific account for calendars and contacts etc.. and have them sync.

Hi! I am using Google Drive on my iPad, but google drive doesn't sync my files. I can only see my files, but if i try to highlight, I have to open in other program (ie. adobe reader), in this case the file is opened with another name and all changes are not synced to Google Drive. Can you help me please?

The Google Drive App will let you view many formats but is limited in what it can edit.
Once you open the file in another App, it is physically Copied there, so if you edit it say in Adobe reader, you are editing the copy.
You need to send it back to Google Drive, so its available to every other device accessing Google Drive. Use the Twisted Action Arrow at the top left corner of Adobe when viewing the document and look for Google Drive there so you can copy it back to it. It will ask you if you want to upload it, just say yes.
File Management on an iPad is not quite as straight forward as on a computer because it does not have a normal file system like you are used to in a computer. All files must be associated with an App, and reside in the Apps file space area for them to access it. There is no shared file space between Apps, so every time you open in another App you create a copy.
