Help People App issue and how do i fix it?


i picked up my Evo, my first android device so far and playing with it ive got an issue i cant find any information about.

what i did:
people app > held menu. the keyboard pops up, thinking it was to search for a contact i started typing away. well what i types is now, best i can figure a permanent over lay at the bottom of the screen. kinda big kind of annoying. anyone seen this before and or know how to get rid of it?

ive tried to change scenes and its still there, doing it again and seeing the backspace doesn't erase anything
