Pickpocket ever-present?

I’ve been away from this wonderful game for awhile, came back to finish off the last quests. Missed it!
The problem is though, that now the main interaction available with every person is to ‘pickpocket’. I’m not crouching, and this is very unnerving, first thing i did was to accidentally pickpocket someone I wanted to talk to. What is happening here and how can I make it stop?
