I'm sorry about the issue, first go to the Account support page : https://accounts.google.com/signin/recovery
Follow the instructions. You'll be asked some questions to confirm it's your account. Answer as best you can.
Reset your password. Choose a strong password ***** you haven't already used with this account.

if you can't reset your Gmail password ***** a new Gmail address and email all your contacts to warn them of this. and report your old Gmail account by telling Google that your account was hacked and you need to close it (or recover it) : https://support.google.com/mail/contact/abuse

Thank you
