Clone stamp now represented by numbers - an embedded watermark?

I created a meme one of my social media platforms. A member of my online community had an image of two politicians and I made a quick meme by adding a satirical comment to it (many of us exchange political memes).  I did a quick clean up of the image including cloning out a series of numbers on the bottom of the image that were distracting. Now my clone stamp has that number on it representing the clone tool (spooky). 
I did some digging and the image appears to be outside the public domain (argh). It was after a long day and I am usually far more careful. I made no profit nor profit in any way - in fact I use the platform to defend a disabled child denied citizenship in Australia. Have I copped some kind of digital watermark that's got me in its grip?
I went into the clone tool and reset it but the tool is still represented by the number. I did an image search and it is the same number as the original image. Thoughts?

Is there a way to restore the clone stamp to its original icon - it still works but it's no longer a clone stamp with brush size just this cursed number in a rectangular box like a vehicle registration plate - it's haunting me.

The image attached is the image in question but it shows the anomaly occurring with the clone stamp.

Thank you.
