Default Gas engine keeps running

Hello, a few days ago I noticed my 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid no longer shuts off the gas motor when stopped. Up until recently, the gas motor would shut off when at a stop light, or in slower traffic-- as long as the AC wasn't running. But now the gas motor keeps running.
When I first start the vehicle, the gas motor will still sometimes shut off normally for the first 10 minutes or so if I stop. But after the engine warms up, it never shuts off now. When at a stop light, while the gas engine is running, I can hear a clutch kicking in and out, similar to the AC one. But, my AC is off.
I checked the coolant, and it looks fine.
There are no warning lights.

Anyone know what might be causing this?

Thanks!
