    I have reason to believe someone may be monitoring what I do on the internet. They haven't had access to my MacBook, but may have gotten my IP address. Is it possible? Is there any way to tell if they have remotely installed a keylogger or website tracking device? Does such a thing exist? Any advice is appreciated.

    Well anything is possible, but I'd say highly unlikely. If they haven't had access to the machine they would need much more than your IP to install some keylogger app on your machine.

    They'd have to know your password to install a keylogger, meaning they'd have to keylog you typing in your password to have your password to install a keylogger.

    So no, that's not it. What's this "reason to believe"?
