Post subject:  What exactly am I uploading?

I'm a noob.

I just started using the client, and I'm already uploading. Does it mean it is uploading stuff from my computer (I don't think so), or is it re-uploading to other users the part of the file that I've already download, or is it just using my bandwith for something else?

It is uploading parts of the file you are downloading to any "peers" that need those parts of the file.

Correct, DCI. BitTorrent only uploads data that is part of the file or set of files you are downloading. Nothing else on your computer is accessed.
