Are you trying to say the photos are not yours, or that you don't know how they got on your iPhone?

Your photostream photos come from your iOS devices attached to your iCloud address. Your libraries come from the folders you chose to sync from your computer. You can get rid of them by going to your iTunes settings, and unchecking the folders you don't want showing up on your iPhone.

The only way for them to get onto your iPhone is if a) you took them on your iPhone, b) you have them in your PhotoStream (perhaps took them with another iPhone or iPad linked to the same iCloud account), or c) if you are syncing the folder containing them on your computer.

Oh yea, or if someone emailed them to you and you saved them to your camera roll from the email.
