Getting a namespace definition error whenever i load a script into VS Code?

    Hi there, every time I load up a new script it gives me this error

    Code (CSharp):
    1. The namespace '<global namespace>' already contains a definition for 'PlannetGravity' [Assembly-CSharp]
    it seems to not matter what i name it, because a file that was previously working now throws this error. ^

    Here is the code:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. using System.Collections;
    2. using System.Collections.Generic;
    3. using UnityEngine;
    4.  
    5. public class PlannetGravity : MonoBehaviour {
    6.  
    7.     // Use this for initialization
    8.     void Start () {
    9.      
    10.     }
    11.  
    12.     // Update is called once per frame
    13.     void Update () {
    14.      
    15.     }
    16. }
    17.  
    How should i fix this? Is it a unity error or a VS Code error?

    Thanks <3

    (EDIT: After restarting VS Code, it has a chance to start working. Could it be a problem with omnisharp?

    you might have duplicated or renamed the script without the compiler picking it up.
