You set them to values that make it easy for you to understand where the data came from (source), and what format it is (sourcetype). So for example, I have a DB input set up where I set source to the name of the database and table, securitylogs_AccountUpdates, and I set the sourcetype to securitylogs. I then used the sourcetype to describe how to parse the timestamp in props.conf. That way, if I set up more inputs from other tables in the same database, I can use the same sourcetype so I get all that parsing done the same way.

You might not need any special parsing, so just make sure the values you put in Source and Sourcetype make sense for the future.

Here's some more info on the two concepts:
