I dont use Adwords, but I show up in Google ADS

I don't use adwords. Last time I tried it with a free coupon was a year ago. But my domain shows up in google ads with 20 different terms, and all these terms even point to my website. Some of the words are related to my website and some are not. I checked my adwords account and I see that I don't have any of the campaigns that shows up in google ads. I am really confused and I dont know how this can happen. Is someone making ad campaigns and pointing the ads to my domainname? If this is the case I do not understand what the intension of doing this could be? This problem has been for 1 week now.. Does anyone know what this can be and how I can stop this?

Hi;
Jut to verify: When clicking on the ad are you directed to your website?
