i have

if ($_GET['id'])
$sq1 = "SELECT * FROM ads_hits WHERE hits = '".$_GET['id']." ".$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']."'";
$r1 = mysql_query($sq1) or die(mysql_error());

$sql2 ="UPDATE ads_hits SET hits_count= hits_count +1 WHERE hits='".$_GET['id']." ".$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']."' ";




and this adds one to the count, but now i want to be able to say if the ip and id have not had a hit then it will add the ip and id to the database and if it has 1 hit or more then it runs the query above...

first, you just need to see if the IP is existing in the DB already. if it's not, run the code you've already got going:
$sql = mysql_query("SELECT COUNT(*) AS count FROM tableName WHERE ip = '$ip'");
if (mysql_result($sql, 0, 'count') > 0)
  // they've already been here
else {
  // run your increment code here

hope this helps!
