Issue with drawing on blank layer

Hi! New to both digital art and krita. I am using 4.3.0.

I have a very strange issue. So when I create a new document, it comes with a background layer and a layer 1. If I start drawing on it, a colorize mask automatically shows up linked to layer 1. And any new layers I create also end up with colorize masks when I start drawing on them. This is a really weird issue and I would appreciate any help I can get! Please help :frowning:

Can you show a screenshot of the window when you are having this problem? I think you are using the colorize mask tool instead of the brush tool
