Probably a virus or other malware. Install Malwarebytes and a good antivirus app.

Or it could be an app, probably recently installed. Anything that you installed recently, try removing, particularly if you don't really need it.

The only other thing I can think of is something playing in the browser in the background. You can try opening Chrome and closing all open tabs/windows/whatever they call them. (There is a number in a box on the status bar that has the number of open tabs - tap that and then swipe everything away.)
