Hi everyone im about to install this rear rack, I dont have the instrucions I bought it second hand here are the pics, looks like its going to mount over my rear brake assembly? not sure kinda dont wanna touch the rear brakes at this point either looking at the pics can anyone help???

Can't tell from the pix. Can you take a pic of the mounting section you're asking about, not from the side, so we can see the bolt hole (or whatever it's got) up there.

those are the only pics I have gonna buy it from some guy off of craigslist, any experience with the type of rack that attaches over the rear brake??

That is a Pletscher rack and they are usually quite simple to install... it clamps to the seat stay and should clear the brake assembly if it is the right size.
Make sure you wrap the rear seat stays with a little old inner tube of black tape to prevent scratches and that the rack is the right size for your frame.

hey thanks im just gonna have it shipped, I didnt check the size, and I have another stupid question where is the seat stay on the bike???

The seat stays are the tubes that descend from the seat post to the rear drop out.
