Top letter row of keys not working

Hello,

 

Just this morning as I turned my laptop on I couldn't use the top row of keys (Q through to P with exception to T and Y which function fine). 

 

As for the middle row, A through ; , anytime I input a key it shows the value for that key and the one above it. For example, when I hit A, it shows QA, when I hit F, it shows RF. The exceptions are G and H (I'd assume this relates to the fact that T and Y keys function fine). The bottom row of keys are just fine, as are the number keys. 

 

I cannot recall any type of water damage, which is why I'm pretty confused. I've had the laptop for a little over 2 years but it's been working just fine. 

 

I'm pretty much wondering how big of a problem this is. Could I take off the keyboard on my own and clean it? Might the issue be so severe I should get it replaced? Thanks a lot in advance! Greatly appreciated
