MuseScore gets it defaults page size from the default paper size of your default printer, so it must be set to something non-standard. If changing that isn't convenient, then you can create a style file (MSS) with your own preferred sizes. Just set up a score as you like, then go to Format / Save Style, specify a name to save to, then edit the file to remove everything note related to page size. Then you can specify that as your default in Edit / Preferences / Score.

If you continue to have trouble, it is best to ask for help on the Support forum and include more info, like what OS you are on, what your default printer / page size actually is, and a sample score you get if you simply create a new one using the Treble template and then immediately save, so we can understand and assist better.
