I believe this is related to the non-stock SMS software. I had this issue with Handcent and the solution is to make it your default SMS app. You might try removing GO SMS for a while and seeing if it changes anything. Or poke through the settings and see if there is anything related to the SMS app sending its own ghost SMSes.
I AM having an ongoing issue with handcent reporting to me a count of unread messages that I have previously read, every time I receive a new SMS or sometimes just out of the blue. The only solution I have found so far is to delete the threads from the people mentioned. Don't really like that solution but it's what I've found so far.
