The kickstand that came with my bike is rusty and is difficult to adjust. What should I use for lubrication?

Grease. You want a lubricant that will stick around. WD40 is a degreaser and is designed to penetrate, lubricate then evaporate. Which is great for removing something that's stuck. But for a kickstand you want it to keep working for a long time. So, grease.
"White grease". This is, as it sounds, a grease that is white. Comes in "toothpaste" tubes and spray cans. An auto store will know what you mean.
A little dab 'll do ya.
