Need Help Rotation Issue

I am relearning 3d modeling after almost 5 years and never got super far into it the first time. I am really enjoying it so i got the jeep tutorial from CG masters since i want to do a truck. It is a great tutorial btw for anyone looking for one. Anyways i was at the part adding a curve on top of the back panel when i went to rotate it and instead of rotating it in place like it usually does, it is rotating from some orange dot in the middle. I must have hit a wrong shortcut along the way or something and i have google searched but can not seem to find anything. It is not rotating from the 3d cursor i moved that several times to make sure.can anyone help me please? sorry if a dumb question.
