flash trouble

i have an af 540 flash and a metz 50 af-1 flash, and i use a pentax k 5

i have a problem when i put the flash mode in manual and i shoot it always sends out a pre flash and then the actual flash comes out a fraction of a second afterwards

,but it does not happen in the 540 flash when i put it on auto ,it always fire in sync with the shutter button ,but not on any other mode,can anyone tell me what i am doing incorrect , of if i have a setting off from where it should be positioned i dont put the shutter speed over 1/180 of a sec
