Go to the Credit Karma home page. In the left hand margin select "Credit Reports." When it comes up, scroll down to "Accounts." Click on "Credit Cards." Find the account in question, and look to your right, next to the balance. If it says "Open - Current" then yes, you can use it or close it. 
The other two you don't use... do you mean they're not on your report at all, or do you mean they're still open even though you don't use them? Creditors take anywhere from six months to two years to close an account that has had no activity.
