Front audio ports causing headphone output to go into my microphone input.

So, a few days ago, my friends in teamspeak told me that I was slightly echoing, but they quit mentioning it after a few minutes. Yesterday though, my friends said they could hear my music, themselves, and after some troubleshooting, they can hear everything that comes out of my headphones (and yes, I know it's not my audio bleeding into my mic).
So after further troubleshooting, I've found that when I use the higher quality recording option, my headphone output is easy to hear, although my lower quality recording option makes my mic input quality terrible, according to my friends.

When listening to my Microphone under the "Listen" tab in my audio settings, I cannot hear the echo, but I can when I record myself.

Then, I tried everything: using my rear ports, using my USB-Audio converter, and etc. Nothing else has the headphone output bleed, so I've come to the conclusion that my front audio panel is what is causing my headphone output to go into my microphone input. Any help please?
