Power Query automatically changes text to number

Hi, I have a table as below with the first column stating Period with abreviations of the months

minhduc_nguyen_0-1600162865694.png

But when importing the data into Power BI the first column with the abreviations of months was turned into some numbers as below

minhduc_nguyen_1-1600162938482.png

Is this an error or did I do something wrong? Appreicate any helps thanks in advanced
