DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!
i would delete your most recent apps and work your way backwards as far as apps go.....usually adware such as this comes attached to an app you installed.
also i forgot to mention that before you delete the app to wipe cache and data for each app. sometimes these adwares gets stored there....and sometimes will also stay on the phone after you delete the app.

so make sure that you wipe cache and data for the app before uninstalling it.
