The first question that comes to mind is could anyone gain access to your computer. Roommate, girlfriend/boyfriend/spouse, etc.? As far as I know, there is no way to remove the IP address from Google’s account activity records. Even if someone spoofed your IP address to log in, the responses from Google would go to your actual IP address (i.e. the one being “spoofed”). They could log in using a proxy, but it would still show up as something other than your IP address. Also, is your WiFi secured? I would make sure to have WPA2 active and change the password.

What I would do for your Gmail account is change the password and enable two factor authentication for your Google account, then use it religiously. That way, without access to your cell phone to get the 6 digit authentication code, no one should be able to log into your account. You can choose not to register your own computer as trusted so you will need the authentication code every time you log in. It’s not that much of an inconvenience, and should make it very difficult for anyone to gain access, assuming you keep tabs on your cell phone and keep it screen locked too. I would also go into my account settings and turn “security notifications” on under the security tab so that Google will notify you of suspicious log in activity.

I agree with Becker, change your password ASAP. Then do the two factor authentication thing.
