So that we can give accurate and relevant information, please always say which exact version of Audacity you are using (look in “Help menu > About Audacity”.)

Assuming that you are using the current 2.2.1 version, look in “Transport menu > Transport Options > Sound Activated Recording (On/Off)”.
I suspect that option has a tick by it, but it shouldn’t have, so click on that item to turn off Sound Activated Recording.
