I think I might have been Hacked or have a virus?

sooo... I found this folder on my USB stick called "trick" and I didn't know how it got there but every time I open it up in visual studio it says "access denied", and every time I put something on the USB drive (in the root directory) the item ether turns in to a .exe file or the item disappears like the USB is "Eating" my files but the strange thing is I see the files when I opened my USB up in visual studio but when I open it with a regular file explorer it doesn't show :?: :|
could someone explain to me what is happening?

PS.im a 16-year old and I just started studying programming (c++) and would like to know how to expand my skills in depth.

Programming is like food...not everyone gets it™

after doing some googling it seems you indeed are infected, do not run those exe files.
