Keyboard is randomly typing 2 or more characters instead of 1

Hi guys i have a 3 weeks old mechanical keyboard, so practically is new, and after a while i realised that sometimes, randomly, 2 or more characters are being typed instead of 1.
I would like to tell me please if you think it is something to do with my pc or windows, or it is the keyboard's fault and i should have it replaced.

There may also be settings for the Repeat rate in Control Panel, Keyboard that could be changed.
