A watch only wallet is a bitcoin wallet without the corresponding private key, allowing the user to watch the wallet for outputs but not to spend them.
You must have set this up yourself from a previous wallet you have.

Have a read of this and it might help, especially if you are using blockchain.info wallet:

If that's not the kind of wallet that you wanted I suggest downloading another one. Copay is a good one.
