New files aren't blank - they copy a file in Draft folder?

Whenever I create a new text file (clicking the green “+” once), it’s creating a copy of a particular file in my Draft folder. This happens even if I put that file in the trash first. I am not creating from a template - just trying to insert a blank file. That’s all I want - a blank file. Anybody know why this is happening and how I can stop it? I can’t find any setting for this and I’m wondering if this project file has become somehow corrupted.

Update: I have figured it out. I had to delete that file AND empty the trash. That cleared it up. Back to normal now.
