I had RNA-seq data from Illumina (paired-ends), which adapters were removed and quality trimming performed successfully using Trimmomatic. After analysing with FastQC, all seems OK. However, there are one thing that worries me: the kmers. Some pictures:

Why is it? Apparently, there are no overrepresented sequences according to FastQC.

Have you checked FastQC website?. These examples will give you an idea whats wrong with your sequence:

Overrepresented Kmers: http://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/projects/fastqc/Help/3%20Analysis%20Modules/11%20Overrepresented%20Kmers.html

That site tells you what is happening and how, but doesn't tell you why or potential scenarios.
