Should I but all these or should I just take the Whey and leave the other two?

Whey and creatine is all you'll need for most regimes and some people will argue you don't even need the whey if you have an appropriate diet.

Creatine aids exercise and recovery, so you can exercise more often.

To be honest, I don't even know what the other two do and I've never taken them myself.

I take l-carnitine tablets when I'm really committing myself to eating well and exercising, and I've found it really does help be shift excess fat. A large part of that is likely placebo or mental coaching, though, as when I know I've had a tablet so my fat metabolism is enhanced as per the function of the molecule, I am much more likely to stick to my diet. A few tablets a day for a few weeks and I've dropped enough weight in the past that I've actually worried.

For a standard recovery shake, you want 2:1 carb:protein so that your body had the easy access energy to recover muscles and the protein to use to rebuild. You can generally buy ground up oats for making shakes. Some BCAAs wouldn't hurt either.

Just to point out that peri-workout you want fast acting carbs, a dextrose / maltodextrin combo is ideal but either on their own is good enough. The idea is for you to spike your insulin up before and during your workout so that protein + carbs can be carried to the muscle cells to replenish amino acids and glycogen as soon as possible. I'm currently playing with a regime that has me taking 40g of BCAAs during my workout and a whey isolate/maltodextrin drink when I'm done; aside from feeling giddy from all the food colouring in the instantized BCAAs I have to say it's working out pretty well.
