    Have a look at

    http://appleid.apple.com

    It's a bit iffy at the mo so might take a few tries, but you will be able to sort your account there, change emails, passwords etc if needs be

    On your ipad click on the App Store icon, once in, scroll to the bottom and it will have a button with your currently logged in appleid.

    With the website, you have to login, thus showing your email address, but the ipad might be using a different one?
