Do i have to delete my old Hibernations?What on earth do you mean by this?

As far as I'm aware you can't "delete hibernations", they are just there on disk until you bring the machine out of hibernation, then they are gone. Perhaps I'm wrong, of course, as I can't hibernate my machine, but I think that is correct.

i thought that it took up disk space (hard drive disk) and then when it boots up, it doesnt do anything with the space (like delete or anything) then again i might be (and probably am) wrong

AFAIK it's stored in swap and doesn't need to be deleted.

Not at all. Your computer will get rid of the data stored for hibernation after you're done "hibernating".
