So i have a transaction thats went 24 hours with zero confirmations. it had preference high at 96% confidence. now it looks like its been re-sent but only 42% confidence and preference low. If i never recieve this bitcoin, what happens? It's about $2000 worth.

You should probably start your own thread, but what is the transaction ID?  What wallet was used?

It will either confirm or not so will either remain where it is or go to the new address.  There is no limbo state where bitcoin isn’t somewhere (nothing like a check in the mail) since bitcoin is at a lower level built on inputs and outputs.  If someone was sending it to you, you can keep broadcasting it.  But without the transaction ID, it is difficult to give much concrete information.
