I have no idea how to reproduce the issue. I just noticed it when I was working on the file.

Most likely you accidentally (or deliberately, not knowing what it was for) entered Insert Mode. If so, returning the the usual Step-Time note input mode will address it. Crtl+Delete will then delete any beats you erroneously added while in that mode.

There's plenty of ways to make note values appear to outlast the actual duration of the measure. I doubt that was intentional, but just to check: Are the half notes actually half notes or are they quarter notes with half note heads? Does the triplet extend over a half note (as it appears) or a quarter note? Attached is an screenshot to make note values appear different than they actually are.
