I have a question I can not seem to get an anwser for, what does the K stand for in Kp,Ki,Kd. Does this simply stand for gain or is it somthing else.

These numbers usually refer to the gain in front of the particular term in a PID controller. These are the parameters you would tune to get the behavior you want out of your controller.
