Keq is the generalized equilibrium constant, whereas Kc is the equilibrium constant found using concentration values. You would use Kc when you are specifically calculating the equilibrium constant using the molarity values of each reactant/product.
Also relevant to this discussion is how Kc is different than Kp. Kp is the equilibrium constant found using partial pressures. The method of calculating Kp is essentially the same as Kc, except Kp is calculated by the partial pressure of products/the partial pressure of the reactants.

Yes, Kc and Kp are both types of Keq, and Keq is labelled based on whether you use concentration or partial pressures.
