Hammering sound coming from water pipes, also kitchen tap randomly coming on, without me turning it on.
I doubt the kitchen tap is actually turning itself on - or is it?
Perhaps fluctuations in water pressure are defeating the tap...

Hammering is often caused by a worn tap. When turned partly on the jumper can vibrate and cause the pressure in the pipe to fluctuate and magnify the noise, especially when there is a long run of pipe that is inadequately clipped to the wall...

American Standard Kitchen Faucet Low water flow
I had the same issue with an American Standard faucet that I installed new 6 months ago. The diverter can be the issue if you have a sprayer attachment. Try unscrewing the sprayer head from the hose it's attached to. Now run the water full pressure with the hose pointed into the sink, obviously :~). After running the water for about 1 minute, connect the sprayer head back onto the hose, make certain the flat rubber washer and ring gaskets are seated in their grooves properly, and tighten until you have no water leaking from the sprayer head/hose connection. Now try the water through the faucet. If the problem was a temporary diverter issue, your pressure should be fine now. Good luck
