It's really hard, actually pretty near impossible, to answer this without knowing the context you're seeing these in.

Im guessing your seeing these in relation to physics, motion?

All of those 3 mean the same thing. Units for velocity, or speed.
m is metres, s is seconds.
Meters per second is m/s. since 1/s is equal to s-1, we write it like the ways you stated.

Do you mean m s-1?

If so, that's the same as m/s or "meters per second" as Gib Z said.
