What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?
If you play any of these files outside of Premiere Elements is the playback OK?
Does your video import into the Premiere Elements project with its own audio track? If so, what does the soundtrack sound sound like
when there is no video in the project?
Let us start here and then decide what next.
Not all people experience this problem with mp3 files, but I have. My workaround was to convert them to wav files in Audacity or Audition and then import them into Premiere Elements.
As per your comment

For what version of Premiere Elements on what computer operating system are you using your .mp3 to .wav conversion for your glitchy audio?
And, within that computer environment, has the workaround been required for all .mp3 recordings in all Premiere Elements projects?
Not all your details have been posted yet. But, if this comes to .mp3 versus .wav conversion, a suggested route for the conversion is using iTunes.
This is the Apple link which I can supplement with first hand use information if needed.
Looking forward to your follow up details.
HI Thanks for your interest and suggestions. I did finally get it cleaned up, once I rendered the video all the glitches soothed out, so I guess I will chalk it up to inexperience! Nice t have this forum wth all of your collective expertise , I am sure I will have more questions as I learn and explore the software!
Thank so much, I did get it cleared up, glitchiness disappeared once I rendered the files. Operator inexperience strikes again!
Thanks for the great news that you resolved your issue.
If you have just your mp3 music on the soundtrack, there is no "rendering of the Timeline content" possible.
However, in your case, you had video along with music. Rendering then becomes possible if the Timeline
video has red (earlier than 11) or orange (11 or later) line over its contents.
Since you are new to the program, the above may not be clear.
So, for now, bottom line, make sure that you or the project or setting the project preset that will match the
properties of your source media.
With content with red or orange line above it, then render the Timeline by pressing the Enter key of the computer
keyboard to get the best possible preview in the Edit area monitor.
More on all this another time if interested.
