Hi, in my fall semester I unfortunately got a C- on general chemistry. I know that I need to retake it since its a pre requisite for medical schools. Do I need to retake it with the labs or can I just retake the lecture?

ONLY if a school you're applying to requires a C or better.

OR if you feel that you haven't mastered the material, as you'll need it for MCAT.

Some schools do not award credit for grades under a "C", so that means he would have to retake it right? Gen Chem. 1 is a prereq for most non-competency based schools.

Yes, he would have to retake. A C- is not a C.

Does the lab have a separate grade that is higher than a C-
It doesn't so I think I will have to take it. However, I'm transfering colleges and that college gives 3 credits for lecture and 2 for lab. Can I take lecture and lab at different semesters?

Including the lab?

It depends upon the school's requirement.

If the school requires "1 year of chem including lab with no grade less than a 3.0" ...how do you interpret that?

Then the lab is part of the class and its grade.

If the new school doesn't require simultaneous registration, then you can take them in different terms.
