Why does my mouse button feel like it's double clicking?

Hi! My 15" MBP is doing a weird double clicking thing when I press the mouse button in certain places. If I hit it square in the middle while I'm surfing the web, it's totally fine, but if I press it on the right or left sides it makes this annoying half click and I have to hit it twice very quickly to get it to click.

Any idea what may be going on? Or if this is salvageable?

PS) this is a hardware problem, not a software issue.

Try going to System preferences - trackpad and check the Double-Click Speed, also the box for Tap trackpad using two fingers and see if that fixes it.

I know this may sound strange but try taking the battery out and tell me if the problem persists.
