Your "Test" goal has only one URL to '/rules2.php'.  If this is your home page or you expect users to directly arrive at your site by this page then the way you have it is correct.

However, it is more likely that users arrive at this page through your home page as follows:

Step 1: /                    Home Page
Step 2:/rules2.php    Rules 2 Page

Also, you need to ensure that all your pages include the Google Tracking code so that Google can see where users are going.  Without, this Google, wont be able to give you any useful information.

If i set my goal as rules2.php but my funnel to be,

Step 1: medals.php
Step2: rules2.php

then if someone just arrived at rules2.php, without going through medals.php, will that be considered a goal?

Yes. As long as you don't check the required check box.

If you check the required checkbox then only people that go first to your medals.php and then to your rules2.php will be considered a fulfillment of your goal.

Do you have the Google tracking code on your pages?
