It seems to be taking photos sideways, too.

Did you accidentally choose a lower quality and/or resolution setting? It would seem that the photo was either taken in low light without a flash, if it's not a low quality/low resolution problem.

is it by chance a small point and shoot? that's noise from the combination of low light/high iso/small sensor/other things. it's fairly normal.
try setting your iso value to the lowest and/or using a flash.

This is what i was going to guess. If you have any way of manually adjusting ISO levels, the lower the number (i.e. 200 or 400), the lower the noise.

Another possibility is damage to the CCD that can occur with extreme exposure to light. This is unlikely in a point and shoot with an affixed lens.

This looks like a white balance problem, along with low light.
