It sounds like the Shuffle setting has been enabled. It can be disabled from the Now Playing screen. Swipe to the left to bring up the additional controls. The Shuffle icon setting looks like to arrows making somewhat of an X shape. See page 21 of your iPod's User Guide for more help and nstructions on turning it off.
