So recently I bought Razer Kraken Pro and its microphone is picking up everything im listening to, When im doing a skype call, people im talking to hear if im watching youtube for example. Previously i used to own a mic which stood on my table and earphones and then everything worked perfectly. I have literally googled everything possible and tried so many different options, but nothing has worked.
So I really hope i can find a solution for this problem here.
Thanks.
(My audio software is Realtek HD Audio manager if that matters)

I'm assuming you're using the 3.5mm plugged directly into the computer's sound card, not a USB card or anything like that. Are you plugged into the front of the computer? On some cases, the cables coming from the motherboard to the front I/O are either not shielded or not shielded very well. This can cause some "cross-talk" between the cables, causing the sound coming from the output cable carrying over to the input (microphone) cable.

This is the case of my computer's chassis (NZXT Phantom 410) and plugging the headset into the back on the computer resolved the issue.
