    Gsus4 = G C D
    Fsus4 = F Bb C
    F/C = C F A (C)

    The "scale" could be F major or Bb major. That includes their relative minors, of course (D minor or G minor), as well as their other modes.

    The "key", meanwhile, is whatever note/chord "sounds like home" - the tonal centre and most convincing final note/chord of your piece. That's hard to tell from just three chords, especially as the last F has a C bass (making it unstable as key chord).
    But a piece of music doesn't need to have a clear key centre - it can just loop endlessly if you want, or end on a chord that doesn't sound resolved.
