You probably got a bad pen. The first one I got the tip of the pin would stick and would do random stuff. You need to get a new one

My S pen was doing that too. Just by hovering it was writing or selecting things, very annoying. There is an adjustment under the button, but hold off on that. I actually just slapped mine down and that fixed it. Sounds strange I know. I found that as a fix when I was looking for a solution to the problem. Just slapped it down on it's side on a flat surface and haven't had the problem return yet. Perform at your own risk, but if it's already not working properly not much to lose, just don't break it in half or anything.

My S Pen did this also. I got the phone from Tmo on release day and they had no replacement pens to they actually swapped my entire phone.
