I answered that already: it's an expletive.

P.S. There is nothing wrong with a plural after es gibt as long as it's not definite.

Es gibt zwei Tragödien im Leben
Es gibt zwei Arten von Menschen auf dieser Welt
Es gibt zwei Arten von Schmerz
Es gibt zwei Arten sein Leben zu leben
Es gibt drei Dinge im Leben, die dich ruinieren können
Es gibt drei Arten von Lügen
Es gibt drei Wahrheiten
Es gibt 4 Arten von Chemie.
