I was wondering what does log^3(n) mean (yes its log^3 (n) not log (n)^3)?

What do you mean with :" what does $$log^3n$$ mean? It is simply the third power of the log. Or are u asking how will that change the basic shape of the log function?

Does that mean log^3 n = (logn)^3?

Yes.

Just like

$$\sin^3x = (\sin x)^3$$

It's just notation.
