I don't know if this is a realy stupid question or something... but for some reason my 500gb hardrive is partitioned like:

Local Disk C: 270gb
Local Disk D: 195gb

it says D is empty but it has the motherboard drivers on it (I think) and I use C as my main storage and I wanted to know if there was a way to reduce the size of D and put the storage space on the C.

The original genuine system usually only have two partitions which is setted by OEM before selling.

To acheive your goal you'll have to use 3rd party tool, I know some freeware could acheive your goal. If you are only windows home users, you may search partition magic for windows 7

You can extend or shrink volume with Windows 8 built-in Disk Partition Management if your OS is win 8. Or you can use a third party software to solve this problem such as miniaide. It works well and it's free for home users. And you can download it there:
