Unless you've set iPhoto to NOT copy photos into your library, they are merely copies. This happens when you accidentally drag a folder containing an application or something else with image files. iPhoto imports EVERYTHING in the folder, including icons and button graphics in an application, for example.
Ctrl-Click on one of the files and choose Show File. If it shows up in your iPhoto Library, with an unitalicized name, it is a copy.
Don't delete the file that Show File shows you. Go back to iPhoto and delete it from there. The copy within your library will be deleted - it won't disappear from your original software.
