First thing to do is update to LR 5.7.1. No use trying to solve a problem on an outdated version.
BTW, could you post a screen clip of these SCISSORS?
DOWNLOADED 5.7 CAN'T POST CLIP BECAUSE WHEN i LET GO OF THE ALT KEY THEY DISAPPEAR.

The scissors tool in Lightroom spot tool ONLY shows up if you hold the alt/option key while using the tool. Its for removing multiple spots. Is your alt/option key stuck or do you have the keyboard remapped? First, restart Lightroom and if that doesn't work than I would probably delete the preferences file as it clears up all kind of things.
