When im trying to take a photo of something up close and i use the macro setting on the camera, it auto focuses and i can see the object in perfect definition on the screen, but it always ends up blurry by the time the camera is done auto focusing. is there any way that i can focus it manually?

There isn't one. To take macro pictures you can use a macro lens, use extension tubes, use a bellows unit, or use other close-focusing gear. It's the lens that controls how close you can focus, not the camera.
If you'd like any more information, please feel free to ask.
If you're right "on top" of the subject - then, yes - it should indicate "macro". Macro focusing is for "very up close" photography and is exactly as you describe. You simply physically move the camera a little closer to or further from the subject to focus.
Not all lenses are capable of macro focusing. The vast majority of these non-macro lenses are required to be at least a couple (or more) feet away to focus. Macro lenses on the other hand can usually get just inches away - which is a great capability.
Your lens is the limiting factor to take macro photos, the kit lens provided with you camera won't focus very closely, nor it will have decent magnification. There are special purpose macro lenses which can stretch up to and over $1000 for a decent quality one. Tamron's 90mm f2.8 is probably the best value one.
A tripod will be of benefit too, as it slows down the process, so you think about your composition, use manual focus and a small aperture for better depth of focus (field).
You may be beyond (up to close) the focal capability of the lens. Even though there is a macro setting, the lens may not have the capability to focus on an object that close (without adding an external macro lens). The specification on the minimal distance for focus should be listed in the owner's manual.
(From Sigma lens literature) Capable of macro photography, this
lens has a 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300 mm focal
length. It's the ideal high performance lens for portraits, sports
photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that
frequently use the telephoto range. It also has a switch for changeover
to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm with a
maximum close-up magnification from 1:2.9 to 1:2. The minimum focusing
distance is 1.5m / 59 in. at all zoom settings.
Check house not inadvertently set it to macro.
If it has manual focusing try to reset the focus collar - check the manual for something you may have overlooked
Failing all that look up the Fuji Tech Support team in the website
1. Do not use the zoom while using macro.
2. When clicking the Macro button, click it again, only for 2 more seconds at the second click, it goes to 'Super macro' mode for zero distance. This works in the Canon S3 IS, I hope it will help you in the older S2 IS.
3. Use a tripod.
4. Use the timer for no movement when using a tripod.
5. Try using the manual focus, it does the trick when the camera doesn't focus automatically.
