Don't understand what you mean. Do you really hav 1 physical disk? And contains it 2 partitions? 1 for OS and one for other things?

Before you do anything, and if you haven't already, make you recovery disk set. If you laptop didn't come with any install media and relies on a recovery utility, resizing partitions could break the recovery utility and prevent you from using it in the future.
