Keeps putting 1 in front of number when sending text messages

This just started. I'm unable to send text due to it putting a 1 in front of 10 digit number for sending text. I looked at history discussion and it suggested turning off my phone and wiping out any history of texts, all of which I did but to no avail. What started this problem and how do I resolve?

Received a Gift Card Code via Text Message

It says I have been credited $16 and gave me a code followed by a link that directs me to the "myAT&T" sign in page, but it won't let me redeem it because goPhones don't go through "myAT&T". I don't get it, why you send me this if I cannot redeem it?
