"I know what you downloaded" Scaring the sh*t outta me

Guys, this is my first post here in the forum, so, if I'm doing something wrong or that I shouldn't be doing, please let me know and sorry in advance, if so.

So, a few days ago I was aware of a website called " I know what you downloaded". This website is supposed to show us all the torrents that the user have been downloading in a specific amount of time. So, I tried that out and for my surprise the site gave me a list which had a bunch of torrents that I never even heard of. Some stuff in other languages. Some porn stuff. And stuff that I had downloaded, as well.
I went to search to figure it out if my IP address was static or dynamic. It's dynamic. I'm not very used to computers stuff so I don't know exactly if this has anything to do with those "ghost torrents" or not, but I reckon as it's a dynamic IP, it wasn't supposed to show any other downloads if not mine.
Or maybe that website is fucked up in a way or it's not very precise. All I know is that I'm really fucking scared.
I use a notebook connection, with a desktop which holds the internet modem/router. I connect some several devices to it, such as smartv, chrome cast, some mobiles and my very own notebook, of course. It might be someone in my network using my wi fi hotspot?
Please help me by figuring it out what the actual *censored* this can be. And please let me know if I'm being just stupid and doing this post for no reason at all.

Thanks ever since and have a nice day!
