Text bar not lining up with text


As I begin typing, the text bar does not line up with what I am typing. Please take a look at the attached image. After the first few letters the bar becomes further away from the last character I have typed. Does anyone have any ideas why this is or how to fix it.
Thank you

Thank you for the response and directing to helpful info! It gives me a good starting point, I was pretty confused about how to attack this. As you can imagine, writing code with an indicator like this is super frustrating.
