If have windows 7 on the computer i have right now, do i have to buy it for a computer i want to build? Or can i transfer it onto that computer from the one i'm using now? I have a cord that will transfer all of my hard drive files onto a new computer. Im just wondering if it'll transfer windows 7

Is the computer you are using a prebuilt ie Dell, HP, or is it custom built? Or Do you have a retail copy of windows or an OEM license?

Depends - if it's not OEM version AND you are NOT going to use the original computer then YES - you may need to contact microsoft for new product key.

HOWEVER, if you want to use BOTH pc's then as Brett928S2 said, absolutely NO.
