Paid traffic (medium=cpc) suddenly turns into organic session

I am using GTM on https://eventum.no, and I have the strangest experience that I do not understand.

 

The users search eventum and lands on the main page. I check in real-time, and everything looks great. Then they search for venues, and suddenly the medium changes to organic. The source stays the same (this also happesn with bing, so not auto-tagging issue).

 

It worked before starting using GTM, and it seems like someone have had similar problems before (https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Google-Analytics-Reports/Medium-CPC-changing-to-referral-o...) , do anyone have an idea on what can be wrong?

As i observed there GA code is getting fire 2 time on the page.I request you to please remove on GA code from the page/GTM.

 

Please find the GA Debugger Report ,there is a value of medium is getting overridden in second GA Call.
