Default Muscle Questions

I love weight training...I've been working on it since last August...And I'm still confused...

I've been able to make gains on every single machine that I've worked out on, from biceps to leg press to back....everything...

Does this mean I'm gaining muscle? Am I gaining strength but my muscles are the same size? Am I gaining both strength AND muscle size? And does this affect my metabolism in any way?

For example, I started with a 180-pound leg press weights back in August and can now barely (but do-able) press 390 weights and am doing sets of reps between 310-370 pounds regularly....I've made gains from 15-pound bicep weights to 37-pound etc....
