Default Lock screen

I have been using a pattern to unlock my phone when the screen turns off.

All of a sudden I am now first having to swipe a picture that looks like a lock to the right and then use my pattern to unlock the phone.

How do I get rid of the lock swipe so that I only have to draw my pattern?

I have attached a screen shot of lock screen I am trying to remove.

Thanks

Did you add widgets to your home screen?

I use the patten unlock on my S4 as well. Still works like normal, no swipe screen popping up.
