False acceleration readings from S-FUSION with K64F

Hello I am using the S-FUSION development kit with the K64F MCU. I am confused about the data I am receiving. I am reading the acceleration data while keeping the board still, and getting readings of around 0.7 m/s^2 in the Y direction and about 0.07 in the X direction. I am trying to use the acceleration to measure distance, but I can't even get close with the readings this way. Without moving the board, I am getting a displacement of almost 12 meters per 5 seconds. Any reason for this and is there a way I can fix it?
