I heard this sentence and I dont understand why it is correct:
"This is something I am looking at"
...sounds fine to me as does:
"This is something I am looking to remove."
Why is it correct?

In this example, looking at is an idiomatic phrasal verb that means considering [doing something]. It is a bit informal. Same thing with looking to. The difference is that looking at takes a present participle (-ing form) while looking to takes a bare infinitive.
