My new K3 prestige edition...weird behavior within 2 days of owning

So i have had my brand spanking new K3 gunmetal edition for roughly 2 days and within 60-70 clicks this started happening out of nowhere.
Please look at some photos attached, has this happened to anybody with k3? I mean camera is brand spanking new and was working fine till just now,almost every other picture is coming like this. I'm using single focus point, take a picture, then i take another one and this is what comes out...

Looks like you've turned on double exposure in the menu

Looks kinda like Multi-Exposure Composite Mode. Push the D pad Up button and make sure the camera is set to Single Frame Shooting or Continuous Shooting.

That first pic turned out to be a pretty neat looking mistake

Yep I didn't want to comment before the issue is cleared but that first shot is actually good.

Wow - I really must experiment more with multiple exposures. Like the first shot - has you wondering.
