What I'm concerned about is item 2 with ip 126.96.36.199, this ip is neither of my dns serververs and when I perform a whois on it, it belongs to a China network.
Please help, as i am getting a little freaked out.

I doubt you've been hacked. There is possibility that your provider is using this range for internal routing which is weird but anyway possible.

Nice catch, that is weird. But unless you're in China, it's impossible to route through Chinese IPs as your next hop to public. Even if somebody had tampered with your box to route you through an unfriendly chinese proxy, you'd still have to go through your ISPs gateway to get there, and at least a few routers in your country of origin. These would have shown up in your traceroute.
My hunch is that Eugene is correct, and your ISP decided to use that network for internal routing while it was still a BOGON (i.e. not assigned by the IANA). That is extremely ghetto and casts serious doubts on the technical competencies of the engineers who built out your ISP's network, but it shouldn't affect you adversely. That is, unless you ever try to connect to an IP owned by the real Chinese owners of that netblock! Your ISP will almost certainly mis-route the traffic and it will get lost internally.

Considering the ping times, it is probably impossible. However, if it was reasonably high enough to reach China in that amount of time, it probably is possible to have it routed over some VPN. If your public IP or any of your ISP's IP addresses are in the list, that would likely rule out that scenario, too.

Thanks guys, I feel better. I am by no means fluent in networking but, I have come across some pretty funky situations with Vodafone Portugal.
