Every day I check my peace lily to see if it needs watering, and now there are two mushrooms growing in the pot! Please let me know why & how they are growing there and what I should do with them.

It's nothing to worry about. Most potting mediums these days have a high proportion of composted materials within them. Sometimes the composting process is incomplete, but either way, fungal mycorrhizae are present in the soil, and yours are happy enough to produce a fruiting body or two - the mushrooms you're seeing. Just pick them off and bin them if you don't like the look of them. The majority of mycorrhizal activity within soil is beneficial to plants. The mushrooms may recur, they may not.
