SourceTree pull added code to files: <<<<<< .merge-file_a07112

I'm trying to understand the process of integrating changes from my Bitbucket-based repository into a repository on my laptop.  I did a push from a desktop system to my origin repository on Bitbucket and that went well.  Now when I do a pull on the laptop from the origin repository on Bitbucket, I have two conflicting files.  The files have had code added in several places indicating '>>>>>>> .merge-file_a02536' and '<<<<<<< .merge-file_a07112'.  These additions to the code have been saved on the laptop even though the commit is being stopped due to a conflict.  I'm unsure as how to proceed.  How can I remove these added lines and perform the commit?

Those are the flags identifying the merge conflicts. You need to use third party software to resolve the conflicts to make those extra notations go away properly. You can find many recommendations for multiple operating systems in the stackoverflow question:

To add to this, you can resolve the merge yourself in SourceTree, but only by picking 'mine' or 'theirs'. If you need more granular control (which is likely) then do what Seth says :)
