Load bearing question

Hi, I'm a newb here, and also to diy projects. Don't have ANY experience in carpentry other than a little drywall. My question is, in the attached picture, can I either move or remove any of the studs under the stairs (painted white) ? I'm thinking of building drawers under the stairs but I'm concerned about the studs being load bearing. Looks like they might just be for drywall though???? Thanks for your help,

If your talking about what just shows as white lines in the picture, your right there just for drywall.

Release the bottom nails on the stud, if it swings freely from the top, it is not load bearing.
