I have two physical tracks that never used to be joined but now they are one. How do I join them on the database to make one track.

Changes to map basically go through two stages, 1) the way is edited and when saved it enters the database 2) The current database is then used by a rendering tool to draw a map, different rendering tools give different styles and may include or choose to leave out some data. There may also be some delay between an edit and a render that shows your changes.

There are some rendering choices on the map page eg. standard, cycle map, transport map and mapquest. Hope this all helps

Your question is not totally clear, these videos and the beginners guide will show you how to join these points.
http://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/7170/videos-for-new-contributors If you have already joined them it may take a while for the results of your edit to show on the map. see http://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/102/i-have-made-edits-but-they-dont-show-up-on-the-map http://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/9159/buildings-and-names-showing-up-at-different-timesnot-showing-up also before asking any question it will save you time if you do a search of the Q&As as most problems have been solved before.for example I did a search for "videos" and "show on map". Hope this is some help for you and others
