Hmm, it doesn't seem to be that random.
Those are normally entities used to hold an event in the original Cave Story.
Did you put the sprite of the PC in the spot where there should be nothing? That is, the top left of screen?

Hmm, did you use the main character's sprites in other ""sprite sets"" other than mychar, by any chance?
Also, my bad for saying the top left of the screen implying that I was referring to the game itself.

This can only happen if you either filled the top left 16x16 space in NpcSym.bmp with a sprite, or reassigned Npc 000 (Null entity)'s bitmap to MyChar.bmp. Which one did you do?

It was probably the 2nd one.

how do you change it back to show nothing?

By reassigning it back to NpcSym.bmp (if you've used npc.tbl to do assign it to MyChar.bmp, then it should be easy).

Cave Editor: Click on the "Edit NPC Table" button.
Booster's Lab: Click on the "Entity" bullet and then click on the "Edit npc.tbl" button.

The null entity should already be selected since it's the first one (NPC000). Under "Tileset", make sure the entity's assigned to "20 - Npc\NpcSym.bmp"

Are you sure it's the second cause that's happened, though? Because it doesn't sound like it, imo.
