I have a chrome book, and just went to buy my first app (I’ve only downloaded free apps up til now) and I have a $1000 balance in my Google Play account. Why the hell? Where the hell?

You should be able to review your account history and see where it came from.

I’d change your password asap.

While you're changing your account password, also set up two-factor authentication using your phone or something that isn't connected to your email address. (While you're at it, do you use a password manager to make sure you have long, unique passwords?)
