why so many logged in users?

OK I noticed that my gkrellm shows 3 users, I typed who, and this is what I got:
bash-2.05b# who
alagench tty1 Mar 24 15:56
alagench pts/0 Mar 24 22:43 (:0.0)
alagench pts/1 Mar 24 22:48 (:0.0)

I am not running a server or anything. Why am I showing as logged in 3 times? I haven't done anything , just logged in and browsed the net today.

You have two terminal windows open (pts/0 and pts/1), this is perfectly normal (you are sort of logged in to those terminals too).
