were you cutting before? did you start to take creatine? increase sodium? there are plenty of variables that come into the equation.

Go by the mirror. Only you can tell if that weight gain is too fast, not us.

Continue consuming the same amount for 3 more weeks, I 100% guarantee you wont see the same weight increase each week.

Track your weight daily for more accuracy.

It could be your first reading was abnormally low, or your second reading abnormally high. If you just took 2 weight readings its much more likely it was a fluke.

If you have a record of 21 data entries (3 weeks) it'll be much more telling.

are you weighing yourself at the same time of the day each time?

if you weigh yourself 1st thing in the morning, and then the next week weigh yourself right before bed you wont get an accurate asessment.
