So which of the segwit are we experiencing this week or so? Regular segwit or segwit 2x ? I am  kinda contused
Segwit and Segwit2x are not two distinct things. Segwit2x is an extension of Segwit, so when Segwit activates, so will part of Segwit2x. Segwit2x contains additional things on top of Segwit but those will activate later.

Currently Segwit is not activated yet.

To further clarify (or confuse): The Segwit2x extension of regular Segwit is incompatible with regular Segwit (the one being activated now). That's the reason behind the probable split into a Segwit chain and a Segwit2x chain. If Segwit2x activates, regular Segwit nodes will discard Segwit2x blocks due to their blocksize. Segwit2x nodes will have to discard regular Segwit transactions as part of their replay protection.

Indeed, this can be adding more confusion for people (just like me) who seem could not really fathom all the technical details on cryptocurrency. All I am wishing is that soon Bitcoin should be safe and sound after all these talks of dizzying splits and forks.

Will this be the one scheduled on November of this year? Well, if that will lead me to have some free coin in my wallet, then let it be as I am so willing to accept free money anytime. We can all sell the new coin into Bitcoin once it is already possible and in a way help Bitcoin remain valuable.

Bitcoin is safe and sound, it's only the price that could fluctuate Smiley

Yep, that's the split that is scheduled for October / November, however I'm not sure whether they'll stick to that deadline. BCH was also rescheduled on short notice, I wouldn't be surprised if something similar happened to 2x. Just keep track of Bitcointalk / Reddit as the fork date approaches and you should be fine.
