Hi Mike,

If there's a clear demarcation between the two colours, it should be possible to use the 'magic wand' to select one and change it using the 'eyedropper' to pick up the alternate colour and the 'fill tool' to recolour the bit that you've highlighted.
Then do the 'select > inverse' to select the other colour and repeat the performance.
I suggest though that you move the red to the white first so that you retain the same red colour. To change the other bit to white, you can pick up the white colour (which will now have gone from your logo) from the 'foerground/background selection tool.'
I'm using CS6 but I think that you'll have those tools in Elements.
Alternatively, if you get really stuck, you could upload it to here and someone will be glad to do it for you.
Hope this helps.
