Can anyone explain this? All i installed are a few things, spotify, firefox, and parallels are the main ones.

I'd suggest a fresh install and see if the problem remains. If so, back to an Apple Store to get it replaced for a new one.

It could be the benchmark. SandForce controllers treat compressed data differently from other controllers. Maybe try another benchmark.

Has Spotlight stopped indexing? If not, that is why you see the differences minute to minute...

Spotlight indexing:

Thing is it fluctuates minute to minute, sometime its at 240/400 then down to what you see in the pictures

I told what I'd do. Reformat the drive. Reinstall Lion. Download Blackmagic Speedtest. Cross your fingers and hit it. If problem remains...

Must be spotlight. Reinstalling won't change that. Just take a rest. Let it finish indexing. Then run your test when your system isn't busy. Sounds like its fine.
