Most likely someone spilled something into the keyboard. Sorry to say you'll need to replace the entire top cover as the keyboard is riveted to it (some have a mix of screws and rivets).

Here's the iFixIt guide MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2010 Upper Case Replacement you'll need to follow to take it out.

Can i buy just a keyboard or should i change the whole upper case ?


Sorry - Most have rivets and really can't be disassembled. Need to replace the entire upper case to replace the keyboard.
