Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
The cause of this is simple - you have added multiple "start date" fields.
There are two places you will need to check this.
Admin -> Issues -> Custom fields -> type "start" into the search, and it will list all the fields with "start" in their name.
Check each Team-managed project's fields. Fields added to TMPs by their project admins are localised to the project, and with a common field use like "start date", it's likely people will end up adding them to a lot of projects.
When you've found out where the fields are coming from, I would recommend doing some housekeeping and training.
The easy option is to talk to all the team-managed projects and tell them to rename their start date field with a standard (my usual recommendation is to use the project key to make it easy to identify in the list - ABC Start Date, DEF Start Date)
But there is a much better option, which will hugely improve your reporting and search - consolidate down into a single field. You can do this by creating a new start date field in the global list, although if you already have one or more, then choose and reuse one of them. I'll call this the "target start date"
