301 is permanent redirect while 302 is temporary redirect.

Status 301 means that the resource (page) is moved permanently to a new location. The client/browser should not attempt to request the original location but use the new location from now on.
Status 302 means that the resource is temporarily located somewhere else, and the client/browser should continue requesting the original url.
A redirect is when a web page is visited at a certain URL, it changes to a different URL.
