    Hello and welcome to MacForums...without a bit more info ( OS ) I can't be sure of the exact key strokes but if you feel it is just a setting then you will find them at...

    sys pref / track pad

    from there you will be able to set your pad to your liking and watch a bit of video explaining the process

    Hope this helps

    It sounds as if you are actually right-clicking - the menu you see is the menu you get after pressing the right-side button on the mouse or tapping with two fingers on the trackpad. If you happen to be double tapping your trackpad with two fingers, you will get that menu. Should this be the case, make sure to double tap with only one finger.
