Hello and :welcome:, @Melinda3694:

It sounds as if you may have fallen victim to a tech support scam, allowing the scammers remote access to your computer.

If so, you'll need a bit of expert help to check and clean the system of any malware, keyloggers, etc.
Such work is conducted in a special forum area reserved for that purpose, or at the help desk.
So, for expert assistance, I suggest that you please follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
It explains the options for free, expert help >>AND<< the suggested, preliminary steps to expedite the process.
A malware analyst will assist you with looking into your issue - the helper will guide you through scanning, cleanup and repair.

>>While you wait for one of the helpers to assist you there, I suggest that you refrain from conducting ANY financial transactions from this computer.  It would also be a good idea to notify your credit card and banking institutions of possible fraud on your accounts.  And I suggest using a known, clean computer (NOT this one and NOT your mobile phone) to change all your online passwords.  The malware helper who assists you will be able to suggest additional security countermeasures and prevention tips.

Thank you,
