Invert the selection (Select/Invert or <ctrl>I).

Click on the Bucket Fill tool (or <shift>B).
Look in the tool options to make sure the fill type is "FG color

Click on the background area to turn it the color of the letters.
The whole image should now be the same color.

Invert the selection again.

Click in the tool options to change the fill type to "BG color fill".
Click on the words to turn them the background color.

If the words are dithered it's more difficult as you need to change
all the
"in-between" colors to an appropriate "in-between" color.

If you need that let us know and we can go into more detail for that.

Thanks for your reply. I'm not really sure how to tell whether the words are
really dithered or not. There are no sharp edges around them or the logo though
that I'm trying to swap the colors on.

Attached is what I'm working on.

Yes, the letters/logo are dithered.  The edges are "fuzzy".

Since this is a very simple text-logo, if you know and can get access to the font used for the original, you could much more easily (and in higher quality and more quickly) recreate by using text in an image program of some sort -- actually probably better in a vector-based program (Inkscape, Illustrator, etc.) instead of a bit-map-based program (Gimp, Photoshop, etc.).
