Stuttering and replay very fast

Hi all. I am new to recording music so hopefully this will be an easy one. I am using Windows 10 on my laptop and have installed Audacity 2.0 I think. I have connected my Tascom US-144 audio interface and plauggrd my bass guitar in. When I try to record the vertical bar stutters as it moves across that screen and the wave form created has a time lag before showing. When I try to play it back it plays a lot faster than it was recorded. I have tried recording using the mic on the laptop and that is fine. Has anybody any idea what is going on? Thanks
