Those results indicate that your nitrospira bacteria couldn't process the nitrite load quickly enough (probably stemming from too much ammonia), leading to high nitrite and high nitrate readings. You should change out some of the water to bring them down a bit (not to zero though).

Thanks for the explanation. It's good to know what's going on in my tank. I tested my waters today, and the readings were around the same, except the ammonia for the tank that had like 4.00ppm last night only has around 0.50ppm today. Did another water change today.
