Everytime i open a curve as an adjustment layer, it automatically groups with the layer beneath. Is there something I turned on accidentally to do this?

Yes, you turned on the checkbox to automatically group with the previous layer.

Option/alt click the icon in the layers palette to create an adjustment layer, and uncheck the checkbox.

In the adjustments panel, open the menu on the panel, and turn off "Clip To Layer". (sorry, forgot that in my first response)
