Yes, the GPIOs are in analog high impedance drive mode even for a new device.
Please note that a high impedance state does not mean that it is 0. The pin is just left floating. So, there might be some stray charges that could have turned one of the FETs ON.
Thanks and Regards,

If this mode you speak of is undesirable, you might want to put a very resistance value resistor (100K) on the inputs to the FETs. This resistor would be tied to GND or power depending on which bias voltage would prevent the FET from turning on.
Thanks for your reply.
I have added pull up and down resistors to the circuit. For the P chan and N Chan Fets.
