I think something my be entered incorrectly with your program. I entered you as 5'5" and 27 years old, and wanting to lose 2 pounds weekly.(I just guessed) I entered 2500 calories burned weekly. I still got a calorie range of 1200-1550/day.
Check to see if your weekly weight loss goal is 2 pounds. If you have it set for less--this will increase your calories.

The spark calorie counter told me to! :-/
When I upped my exercise, I got a little red angry message warning me that I had to go update my caloric intake. And then thats when it told me 2000-2500.
I was feeling fine with 1200 to 1500, should I go back to that??
Yes, 2000-2500 is too much. Where did you get that number? Was this your SP range? I think even 1500-1750 may be too high for weekly weight loss. Why did you stop with 1200-1500? Were you feeling fatigue?

So I lost 8 pounds in 1 month by exercising for 50 minutes a day and eating between 1200 and 1500.
I was so excited that I decided to increase the intensity of my exercising and slightly increase my caloric intake.
I've gained 2 pounds :@ edit: make that 3 :'(
I burn about 2500 calories a week and Sparkpeople is telling me to eat 2000 to 2500 calories a day... Isn't that too much? I couldn't do it, so I eat between 1500 to 1750...
Am I eating too little and sabotaging my weight-loss??
