OKAY i know this might sound like i am just over paranoid but i am very careful and i know something is wrong! I am sure i am being stalked... i am about to become 18 and i just moved out and my parents are helping me a lot with everything and i appreciate it but the house already freaks me out i already want to go back i am not sure if this is me missing them or is there something actually wrong... so a couple of days ago i would see weird things appearing in or disappearing from the house like i found an apple and i never recall buying any recently it had indents of huge bites and was on the table now something else about this i can't eat apples cause i have braces on... and i eat them in smaller pieces and not bite straight into the apple didn't think much about it though moved on and then i started receiving flowers perfumes and even underwear as gifts i received them with a card all of them the first gifts all had an empty card and very recently they started having initials i would assume of "CK" and didn't ring a bell to me tbh and some weird things would appear in my house that i don't even remember purchasing and tbh it freaked me out cause i am so paranoid the window would open by itself the basement would be messy MY STUFF would go missing like necklaces , bracelets, shirts, bras... etc so finally i was triggered when i came back home and found that an entire shelf was down and everything was on the floor and ON my bed was my underwear and a bra and i called the cops directly after i locked myself in the room and i asked if someone was in the house got no reply until the cops arrived and all this time i haven't touched anything when they removed the garments there was a paper under it that said "CK" whatever that is... WHAT should i do i feel so scared and not even is the police making me feel safe tbh i feel like i am in danger what would you do? i can't even sleep?

You should get out of there. If you had someone living with you I would say it's a little different but if you don't want to leave, here's what you do.
Firstly, get a camera. There are so many options these days and for relatively cheap you can buy one that records when it detects motion and place it somewhere pointing towards the entrance.
Keep everything in your house clean and free of lose debris, even dust. Make it as easy as possible for an officer to get a fingerprint off, lets say the dresser this guy has to go through to take your stuff.
You could also try hireing a private investigator who will stake out your house for a while and will tail whoever goes into your house and find out exactly who he is. This guy (who is likely ex law enforcement) will then give you advice on what to do next.
A private eye gives you more power since they have connections and more rights than the average person.1

When you move into a house for the first time, it's always best to get the locks changed and even test the windows to see how firmly locked they really are from inside and outside the house.
If you feel something isn't right, I wouldn't spend another in the house. I wouldn't risk it. Talk to your family to see if they can help you with some new arrangements or spend a night or two at a hotel and then see if anything changes. You can also see about installing some cameras.
You're also a young female on your own. People will look and take close note of that. So, see about arming yourself.2
