when I open a new document, it automatically has a gray border/grid/margin/frame/box/lines around it.

What's your question? Those lines simply mark the area where your text will appear. You _can_ hide them, but most experienced users would consider that as bad practice.

If menu View - Formatting Marks (the same that Ctrl+F10) is set, you will see a gray border; if Formatting Marks is unset, you will see at the corners something similar to crop marks.

To get rid of them, choose menu View and unselect Text Boundaries.
