A question.

this sounds like you are getting ANSI escape sequences in your output
from ls. There are two things you can do

1. Turn of colour support for ls. This is usually turned on via an
alias in somewhere like /etc/bashrc or $HOME/.bashrc

2. Enable support for ANSI colour sequences within modes derived from
comint within emacs. Try an M-x customize-apropos <ret> ansi to find
which groups/options need to be modified.
