Am I getting hacked? RESOLVED

First windows 7 crashes and blue screens, but i'm on a dual boot system, then my Kubuntu was acting weird and "Seemed" to be randomly deleting stuff, I suppose I could be wrong on that but it was odd because every time I rebooted it would ask for confirmation on deleting a ton of my drivers, which i did not want delete and don't know why it even came up. Then I re-install using ubuntu 10.10, and as soon as I install and configure my firewall, it blocks this IP Address 216.156.249.139

Question, what now? How do I know if its a real threat or coincidence? Or are there any coincidence's when it comes to my firewall blocking IPs on weird ports? it was on port : 57243

[Answer: Yes, Yes I am.]
