MacBook Pro keyboard keeps typing multiple letters at once

So out of nowhere my keyboard seems to be malfunctioning (No liquid spills, overheating, and it hasn't been dropped). When I type certain letters, I'll get a combination of surrounding letters too. For instance, if I type the letter A, I'll get as instead, the letter January gives me jkl, etc. To even log in I had to use an external keyboard because upon restarting it just types \\\\\\\\\ continuously. If I press the caps lock key, it cannot be turned off again.

It's a MacBook Pro Retina 13-inch early 2015, and I got it about two months ago. I do have apple care, but if it can be fixed by changing a setting or something I'd rather save the hassle and do it myself.

Will either be an issue with the keyboard or keyboard connector, caused by a small amount of liquid.

Check the keyboard connector on the logic board for liquid damage. If there is none, it will be a keyboard issue. The keyboards are riveted in on this model and you have to remove the battery as well, so if you haven't carried out repairs before, send it somewhere.

Even condensation in humid environments could be the cause.
