The drives letters are changed by the booted OS.

The booted OS will always be on the C:\ drive. The other OS will be on the D:\ drive (probably). Nothing to worry about.

Yes, drive letters are variable. For example, I have multiple external hard drives. If I disconnect one that was connected a H: and then connect another, the next hard drive will connect as H: as long as the letter is available (i.e. not in use). Some devices will retain their drive letters, ie. My OS X partition is always I: in Windows 7, my two readyboost drives are always G: and J:.
