Flunking a college course, what to do?

I am a non-traditional (old) student who is roughly in her Freshman year as far as credits go. Up until now I have had almost a 4.0 GPA. This term however, I am taking anatomy and physiology, molecular biology and an algebra course. All the sudden I find myself getting C's in A/P and am totally lost in molecular biology. It's too late to withdraw PLUS this is all being paid for with Pell Grants. So what happens to me if I fail a class? Should I try for an incomplete? Will the Pell people make me pay them back ASAP or just not help me next term? I'm freaking out and my school advisers have been anti-helpful.
