I don't even have to be sleeping to get them ill get some just watching like a short t.v program.. (im 31w if that matters)

It can be a sign of high BP. Are you dizzy, seeing spots, or have a head ache that wont go away?
It can also mean you just had to much salt the day before.

I am not sure what you are asking by "Are they bad?" and what exactly do you get even if you don't have to be sleeping to get them. Retaining water means that you are swelling (ankles, hands, face, etc...), I don't understand what that has to do with the disappearing stretch marks either, but here is a link to what retaining water is...
