download malwarebytes mobile from play.google.com and it will scan your phone for any malware/virus and will scan all future downloads.

Ignore it, it is trying to get you to download some crappy AV software (or worse).
(Assuming you didn't download anything)

Go to the google play store and download a free AV like Avast install it and scan with it.  Most likely you were on a bad site which there are several bad websites for cooking because it's so heavily searched.  Just go to the major cooking sites out there and be weary of the others.  Of course keeping Avast on your phone should help keep it safe.
