Taking 2 physics classes over the summer at a 4 year college… not looking good

I am taking two 7-week long college physics courses that cover a two semester long introductory physics curriculum at a 4-year college and my grades aren’t looking too good.

I am getting B’s, which I realize is a solid grade in a college physics class but next to my high school grades, I feel like it will hurt my application.

Should I talk about these classes in my application? I really want to share my experiences and my sentiments that came from this, but if it’s not going to benefit me I probably shouldn’t talk about it. Any advice?
