When posting a question please include your OS and specific LibreOffice version being used. This can affect answers like this one.

You probably have a selection to display formulas. From the menu select Tools->Options. Then double click on LibreOffice Calc in left column. Click on View. Then in right pane see if Formulas under Display section is checked. If so un-check it with a mouse click.

Another option is cells having Text format string; in that case, typing anything into the cell is interpreted as plain text, and not attempted to be interpreted as numbers/formulas/whatever.
