Welcome! I didn't read all the replies, but if no one mention it yet, it only takes a little tiny air bubble on the arm to give a false high reading or a little bit of obstruction/scale to give a false low reading. Definitely get the read verified and consider a refractometer.

Welcome

One thing I'll pitch in is once you verify that salinity, fish can handle fast drops in salinity much better than rapid rise.

So I would first lower it to around 1.30 then to 1.26. Also make sure your topping off evaporation in your tank with Filtered Reverse osmosis water, not saltwater!
 

Do you think there are benefits to turning your skimmer off for periods of time?
