I'm not familiar with MXLinux, but usually live distributions don't mount any hard disk unless you tell them to.

In gparted, make sure you are selecting the drive you want to repartition. By default it will show you firs the "live" device, where / is mounted.

Remember that if something goes wrong wile partitioning you can lose all your information, so you should make a backup before attempting this.
