Different boards have different sensors that report different things.
All Speedfan does is assign them arbitrary labels as it does not know what belongs to what sensor. Those reading obviously wrong values (such as 0 degrees or 127 degrees or something silly like that) can be ignored.

HD is typically hard drive temperature, Core is the CPU temperature and Ambient is typically the temperature of the air inside the case. Temp 1, 2 and 3 are other sensors dotted around the board that may or may not be functional.

Well my temps are as follows (note this is when im not playing a game just surfing and whatnot)

GPU 61c

Temp 1 34c

Temp 2 41c

Temp 3 -128c

HD0 38c

HD1 40c

Core 61c

Ambient 0c

Also my fan speeds are

Fan1 1298 RPM (thats at 100% i think thats the new one i put on my processor)

Fan2 927RPM (thats at 43%)

Does all this sound normal and good to go? do i need to change fan speeds?

Often temp2 is your CPU temp, which seems to be your case.
GPU, and Core (in your case) are GPU temps (on my Vista computer Core temp is read as Core temp)
Still in your case, temp3 - disregard.
HD0, and HD1 are as they are - HD
Temp1 - if you have dual core processor, it's most likely one of the cores temp, along with temp2

Thanks for the info :) do you know if its safe to mess with the fan speeds? I mean is it safe to turn them up to 100% all the time?

I've never had a need to do so, so I can't answer your question.
