Depends which "blue lines" you mean.

By default, ruler guides are light blue, and can be hidden from the view menu or using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + semicolon .

Also by default, bounding box edges on layer 1 are blue. Hide those using Ctrl + H.

You can hide anything non-printing buy going into preview mode. Hit W if there is no active text cursor, or use the view menu or the button at the bottom of the toolbox. Preview mode has three states: Page only, bleed area, or bleed plus slug area.

You can clear an individual guide by selecting it and hitting backspace or delete, or shift clicking or marqueeing a group of guides if you want to do several. Clear all guides, and this is going to seem strange, using Layout > Create guides ... and leaving the horizontal and vertical number fields at zero, then check the clear existing guides box.

You'll probably do better in the Mac forum, but my guess is this is
something coming from the OS, not from Indesign.

It's a CS3 feature that allow you to customize the menus. It can be
changed through workspaces or through the edit>menus command.

It looks like you selected a workspace which shows the various features of InDesign. Change back to the default workspace.
