Didn’t work tapping the # itself & when I tap the i

It just takes me to a “group” from which the # was given to me in the text. Ex: the person(s) who sent me the text are in the “group”. Is there something funky going on w/my phone? I’ve turned my phone on & off several times now so that’s not the problem. Very frustrating, so I guess I’m just going to try to add it in another way.
