It most likely means C9 and D9 (AKA Cadd9 and Dadd9), because people often mislabel them as C2 and D2 (there's a difference).
C9 = 1,3,5,7,9 notes of the C major scale (9th note is the 2nd note, 1 octave up)
D9 = 1,3,5,7,9 notes of the D major scale

However, if it's off of sheet music, it might also mean Csus2 and Dsus2 (sustained2), but those are usually transition chords.
Csus2 = 1,2,5,7 notes of the C major scale
Dsus2 = 1,2,5,7 notes of the D major scale

It's probably just C9 and D9, though.

8notes.com is a good website for chord fingerings, if you need it.

mm 2nd chords will sound terrible whereas add9's give a really unique sound, plus they go well with distortion.

add9 can also be used as a movable shape:

e.g.

e|----------------
B|----------------
G|----------------
D|---9---11-----
A|---7----9------
E|---5----7------

Aadd9, Badd9 etc.

Then there's sus2 chords as Athetosis said, although he gave examples of 7sus2.

e|---3-------0-----
B|---3-------3-----
G|---0-------2-----
D|---0-------0-----
A|---0--------------
E|---3--------------

Gsus2, Dsus2 etc.

Anyway, these chords are more variable and more often used because they lack any particular tonality - basically the 3rds have been replaced by a 2nd (note there are also sus4 chords as well), so they are neither major nor minor.

That's my understanding of it at least - you'd probably get a better answer if you tried Musician Talk
