Default Messed up my computer!

I think i messed up my HDD. I was trying to partition it to dual boot it with linux and i took 30Gb from C: to partition to use for linux. So i took 30Gb from my 74Gb HDD C: and made G:. Now instead of C: being 44Gb and G: being 30Gb, C: is 44Gb and G: has no used space and no free space and its called RAW?? And when i click it it says this drive has not been formatted would you like to format it??

What do i do i just want to get my computer back to just having the C: drive that is 74Gb...

Fat32

But then either one will work as Linux uses it's own file system.

If you want that G drive to have linux, you want Fat32.
