Phantom typing and opening of apps

My phone is pressing its own touchscreen somehow. It opens apps and starts typing if I let it. It's especially a problem in a specific area on the phone - where the 'm' is in portrait mode, but that is not the only place. It will sometimes open up the page with all the latest apps and then get rid of recent apps. There are other things, but they all are of this nature.

Additionally, I cannot type the letter "i" if the phone is in portrait mode. If I try to use swype near the "i" it breaks up the word into something else.

I've tried turning it off and on several times.
