I am really confused about these labels (imap/trash and imap/sent) in my Gmail account.
I don't know why they are there?
One of them in connecting to my inbox, mean when I read a new email from inbox I lose a number from imap/sent unread count.

There are probably being created by what ever imap client you use to check your gmail account. The client assuming that the folder for trash and sent is located in a specific place but google keep it elsewhere.
When you view gmail via the browser these folders created by your imap client show up as labels.
