Someone help me out. Unless I am mistaken one silver Pip on the collar is Ensign, 2 silver pips is Lt., 3 silver pips is Commander, two silver pips and one black is Lt. Cmmd., and of course 4 pips is Captain. Now what is two pips with one black and one white?

That would be Lieutenant (jg) or junior grade. That comes right after Ensign.
