"Users" visits or visitors?

Fairly basic questions but I am getting conflicting information. Does the "user" metric on Google Analytics record the number of individual visitors or the number of visits? For example if I visited the same site three times over a week would that be 1 user (i.e. 1 visitor - me) or 3 users (ie 3 visits)? 

 

Thank you

It would be 1 User with 3 Sessions over a week.
