You are seeing a template that was automatically added to your sandbox when it was created. You should remove this template from your article when you move it to mainspace.

You can do so in the VisualEditor by selecting "edit" on the article.

Then, finding the template on the page, and clicking it.

Then pressing 'delete' on your keyboard. The template should be removed. After it's been removed, "Save changes" and leave an edit summary.

If you are editing in Wiki Markup, you can select "Edit Source", search for the template code {{ sandbox}} and remove it from the page.

If you moved your article from your Sandbox to the mainspace and it still has "Sandbox" in the title, you can change the name of your article using the process described here.
