That's probably busted heat trap. Source: Have had this happen on water heaters on properties I manage. You can get new heat traps at Lowes or home depot. They're basically one way valves, but the gist of it is, they stop your hot water from getting into your cold water inlet

Alternatively, it could be a failed fixture
