Now, i have 3 windows partitions one of 200GB, the other 20GB which is the windows partition and another of 14GB on which I have put my Ubuntu 11.04 installation.

What hasn't helped you yet. You were asked to post information so that someone could help with your problem and you haven't done it.
Is this a wubi install inside windows?
Your first post doesn't make much sense. You say you have three windows partitions and you put Ubuntu on one. Is this a wubi install inside windows? If you have Ubuntu on a separate partition it won't be a windows formatted partition as that won't work.
If you haven't resolved this problem, the first step in getting help would be to post the information requested by markush.
The 2 commands suggested by markush are to help determine what's full & where you can take the additional space from, after posting the requested outputs, you'll find that there will be other suggestions as to how to proceed.
