Iím freaking out. Iím convinced my gmail has been hacked. When I was composing an email  I started typing an address and I noticed a creepy email address with a creepy pic come up in suggestions. I suddenly noticed more email addresses Iíve never emailed before. What do I do??

Then, turn on 2 step verification.
Re-evaluate the quality of your new password and change again if you decide your new one is too weak.

You might not have been hacked!
I just started composing an email and put in an a in the address bar. A list of suggestions came up and when I hovered over 1 I didn't recognize, it said "From user's Google profile."
Maybe the weird suggestions you have are related to Google activity, not gmail hacking.

No, profile of a masked guy I do not see, definitely a different issue.

Do you have any other gmail addresses? Try looking at the suggestions on that one.
People put all sorts of pictures as their profile.  This guy thinks he's funny.

Just Change password and turn on 2 step verification. Nothing much to do.
My account was hacked a while ago turned 2 step verification and no problems since..
