Ok I feel really dumb asking this but, for a b flat note you'd play that on the first fret second string right?
I haven't been practicing with flats and sharps like I should.

1st fret, fifth string. The A string is the fifth string, sir.

I guess it depends on which side of the guitar you start counting from

Yes, but there is a right way and a wrong way. Strings count up from thin to thick.

Now I'm a little confused, I know on the first string the notes are EFG( being on the highest string E), second BCD, third GA, fourth DEF, fith ABC, and on six EFG ( being on the thickest string E ). So there are 2 B's on the second and fith string, I'm talking about the one on the second you'd normally play it open but how would you play it flat?

Sorry if I'm being annoying or something.

You'd play the third fret on the third string to play that Bb, because you can't play an open string a fret lower.

Higher pitch = lower number. This isn't exclusive to guitars.

It's not always tuned to A. If I tune the second string to A, does that make it the B string? What's the E string, the sixth or the first?

TS - it would be a whole lot easier for you if you just started learning the notes on the fretboard...like this

There's usually 4-6 places to play each note on the guitar, including ocataves. Bear in mind that sharps and flats have enharmonic equivalents, so depending on the key you're referring to...so A# equals Bb, C# equals Db, D# equals Eb, F# equals Gb /
