Default Random ad just appeared in my gmail client.

Earlier today when checking my emails I noticed an ad in the top of the list, I have never seen anytihng like this in my Gmail client and I find it rather unsettling.
Is there a risk that my phone has gotten infected by something? A bunch of random apk's have been downloaded without my permission when i was surfing a while ago, but I dont know if anything was installed.

Google has started to place ads in email clients, that's why you are seeing it.
