Have a look in Activity Monitor to see what processes are running, though 50C doesn't seem excessive to me.

I have checked activity monitor and nothing is taking more cpu space than java applet which is at 6%, also 50C when there is no apps open is kind of strange no?

also forgot to add that when the computer first boots up the temperature will start of at around 80C, and when i check the activity monitor, a process called "jamf" will be going all over the place from 4% to 100% or 99%. However once i force quit it the temperature goes down abit to around 60-70

You have something called 'CasperSuite' in your login items?
If you don't use it, remove it. That should take care of the 'jamf' problem on bootup.
My MBP is currently at 64C, I'm not running much, just mail and safari. I really don't think you've got anything to worry about at 50C. If your temp starts climbing to 70C and the fans are noisy, then you need to start looking at what's going on.
EDIT: This might also settle you mind a bit:
