    The issue may be spurious inputs.

    Check to make sure you don't have stuck keys, or something contacting your Trackpad while you move your hands doing other things.

    If you can, connect a USB keyboard and mouse, and see if the issue keeps occurring

    Its will likely be your mouse cursor. Are you using an external mouse or are you just on your trackpad? This can happen if there is a fault with the trackpad or if you accidentally get a little bit of water on it.

    Plug in an external USB mouse and turn off the trackpad in System Preferences and see if the problem goes away. If it does... its a trackpad fault.
