Audio repeating? (And bullets spawning twice)

For some reason after i shoot a couple times, the audio keeps looping. Also sometimes the bullets spawn before they should. Anyone know why?

func _physics_process(delta):
    	if Input.is_action_pressed("Shoot") and can_fire:
 func fire():
    	var bullet_instance = bullet.instance()
    	bullet_instance.position = $Position2D.get_global_position()
    	bullet_instance.rotation_degrees = rotation_degrees
    	bullet_instance.apply_impulse(Vector2(), Vector2(bullet_speed, 0).rotated(rotation))
    	can_fire = false
    	yield(get_tree().create_timer(fire_rate), "timeout")
    	can_fire = true

Are you saying that bullets are sometimes being spawned before the player presses fire? I fire() being called elsewhere?

No, while im fireing the bullet sometimes shoots too quick, and the sound it makes will repeat forever even after shooting one bullet

Do you change can_fire elsewhere ?

By the way you can change your code to remove the yield.

yield(get_tree().create_timer(fire_rate), "timeout")

Create a timer named cooldown with oneshot set to true and just start it from your fire function with your fire_rate parameters and check for timer end to allow shooting again.

if Input.is_action_pressed("Shoot") and $cooldown.time_left == 0:

Maybe it will solve your problem
