Can I view how C++ STL and other system librarys are written?

That will depend on how the various libraries are implemented. In the case of the STL, they are frequently just header files and you can see them if you browse to your compiler's directories.

In the case of OpenGL and DirectX, all you will probably be able to see are the headers. Typically the headers just provide the function definitions. The actual implementations will be compiled into a static or dynamic library of some sort. Edited by Rattrap

Be warned that the C++ standard library, at least, probably won't give you a whole lot of useful information. It's... pretty hard to read unless you really know what you're looking at.
