#1  Delete the messages.  If you open the message, do not click on the "OPEN DOC" link.

#2  IF YOU DID Click on the link and give rights to "allow" the app, you sent a message then from your email account.
  
   You can see who you sent the messages to in your Sent Mail.  

#3  If you allowed the app or typed in a google account password after clicking on the link, you need to remove an app that you auto added to your account.  You probably should also update your Google password.
