Hi,have only Fedora 18( before it i have window 8). I have three partitions Fedora 18,Project and Soft in that partition where I keep my files. I tried to mount both(Project and Soft) in Fedora and I get this error message:

Error mounting /dev/sda3 at /run/media/compamanter/Projects: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/sda3" "/run/media/compamanter/Projects"' exited with non-zero exit status 14: The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0).
Metadata kept in Windows cache, refused to mount.
Failed to mount '/dev/sda3': Operation not permitted
The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown
Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume
read-only with the 'ro' mount option.

How do i fix this?

Have you resumed and shut down windows as the error message says? (You should not be using the partition if windows is in a hibernated state.) In windows, run a complete disk check and then retry. (Please Google on how to run disk checks on windows)

Implies there's something wrong with your disks. Use gparted or the disks utility in gnome and check your disks.

Not really sure. If you can, backup your data and reformat. Your partitions seem to be in an inconsistent state somehow.
