If a character is wounded and takes a level of fatigue do the penalties stack? For example does a character with one wound and is also fatigued take a -2 penalty to all trait rolls?

Yes, penalties from wounds and fatigue stack. See here for official confirmation of this.

Also if you are playing Realms of Cthulhu, you get an additional track for Sanity, and penalties for it also stack with penalties gained from the Wound and Fatigue tracks. – Thunderforge Sep 9 '13 at 16:07
