Converting EPUB to MOBI

I'm not sure what the technical term for this is, but whenever I convert an EPUB to MOBI, the first page is always this garbled text. Is this just something that automatically happens with conversion, or can I remove it? Thanks!

Okay, I figured out that the garbled text is the source code for the cover (or something like that). I think I know what to do now.

If there isn't a cover image, then Calibre will take a picture of the first page and use that as a cover image. Sometimes yeah, it looks quite odd.
