One of the advantadges of apple products is the support. I would go to an Apple store and tell the problem in there. I'm sure they will provide a solution to you.

1. Try to clean the pad with some cleaning liquid.
2. Did this happend after a specific installation of software?
3. Damaged pad

Do you by any chance have a usb or bluetooth mouse also connected to the MacBook?  Sometimes a mouse can interfere with the trackpad ... one overrides the other.

If there is no mouse or other input device in the equation, and you carefully clean the trackpad itself with a lint-free cloth and screenclean or mild cleaning solution ... then you need to call in Apple or Tech Support

This can be caused by a swollen battery. The battery in some models of MacBook Pro are directly under the keypad. If your MacBook is one with a removable battery, take the battery out and see if the problem occurs running the MBP under power without the battery.
