Make a disk image before you do anything. Either on a external hard drive or dvds. Does it have a recovery partition ? Post a pic of your disk management.

You should not loose anything when you do the upgrade.
There`s no reason you won`t like Ultimate.

What do you hope to gain by upgrading windows7 homebasic to Windows 7 ultimate and if you have only had the PC for a week why didn't you have it come with ultimate?
