I used a web tool (not sure I can post the URL in here so I won't) where you plug in your URL and it gives you some diagnostics.
It gave these errors :

WWW/NonWWW Header Check: FAILED
Your site is not returning a 301 redirect from www to non-www or vice versa.
This means that Google may cache both versions of your site, causing sitewide duplicate content penaltiesI'm using a IIS web server.
Note: You are returning a 302 redirect from either www->non-www or vice versa.
This needs to be changed to a 301 permanent redirect for it to be effective.

Google Cache Check: FAILED
Google may have duplicate copies of pages on your site due to indexing both the www and non-www version of your site shows 635 pages cached,
while the www version shows only 542 cached. Unless your site has subdomains, this often means that some duplicate content penalty may exist.

Similarity Check: FAILED
Google indicates that it has "omitted some entries very similar" to the top 1000 pages on your site.
This similarity may be a duplicate content penalty preventing these pages from being considered uniquely valuable in Google's index.

I don't see anything about duplicate URL's (or any other error) in my Google Webmaster account.
Anyone know what I can do about this?
I'm using an IIS Web server.
