Not that I am aware of, I just opened up my browser and was logging in through my school's 2FA service.

Something sent it there, whilst it could have been the site you were visiting, though it could be something else.

Start by clearing your browser cache and cookies,including 3rd party cookies and restart your browser.
If that resolves it you should be good to go.
If it doesn't try running your browser with add-ons disabled.

If that resolves it, have you added or updated any add-ons ?
If so try disabling that add-on - and restart and try again.

Will keep those in mind if I see it again on that website, thank you. Where it is just xfinity though (my ISP) do you think this is a false positive?

As an Avast User I simply can't say.
