Yes you should delete all partitions. Then click "New" on the installer, it will re-create all the necessary partitions for you.

Those partitions are standard OEM backup/recovery partitions.

If you are upgrade &or install newer Windows OS then those partitions are not much use anymore.

Let the new Windows OS to wipe clean & format accordingly.

If possible do go for SSD for faster performance on laptop as prices are dropping.
