    Get a piece of printer paper turn your mouse upside down and roll the ball all around on the paper pushing down pretty hard and it should get all of the junk out of the mouse, you might try and alcohol wipe too to try and clean off that ball.

    It's the mouse ball itself, it's got dirt between the ball and the sensor, you can look how to fix it online, basically rub it upside down on a piece of paper.
