Hello I have much unallocated space roughly 28-30gb that I need to put into /home or /root partitions but when I see the options I have within gparted it doesn't offer "extending" or "resizing" either of those partitions Also I need to move out those 28gb free space from the upper section close to Windows paritions into the extended fedora partition Any tips or help?

It is difficult to give you advice when we do not have a good picture of how your disk is currently partitioned. Did you partition using lvm or just normal partitions? Can you edit the question to include the output of fdisk -l /dev/sda as root assuming sda is the drive in question.

and lsblk, which helps to understand your partition layout in case you have and LVM setup (Fedora's default)

Live boot from USB stick and GParted will be able to modify all your partitions. Depending on how your disk is partitioned, different approaches are going to be optimal.
