Has there been any damage to your computer--such as dropping it/banging it hard, spilling some sort of liquid on the keyboard, etc?

That could possibly be the cause of it. Try to clean the keyboard, somehow.

I would open up your macbook and let it dry out for a few days.

If it still has a warranty, take it in. Otherwise, you could take it in and ask them if they could figure out what is wrong so you can fix it.
It most likely has to do with the liquid, you might have not gotten all of it out and those things do cause issues. I have spilled some water on mine at least twice, but I made sure to clean mine very well both times.
Try shutting it off for a while and turning it back on after you try cleaning it out some more, but if it has been a long time since the water spill, it might be something you need to send in to get it fixed.
