It will have been from when someone else previously had that number and set up Facebook SMS notifications.

 

To stop it, you will need to send the word STOP to that number (using that SIM, otherwise it won't recognise the number).

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Checking on the internet, others have had similar experiences.
