Did any apps update recently?

Try using the phone in safe mode. This is usually accessed by long-pressing the power off icon on the power menu. If the issue goes away then it's an issue with an app you have installed. I once had an app that I trusted update and along with the update came an ad "payload" similar to what you're experiencing. Once I removed that app, the ad went away.

It's probably the result of a free app supported by ads, safe mode would prevent 3rd party apps from running, may need to start uninstalling recently installed apps one by one.
