Might be because you used it at some point of time and forgot? That can be a reason.

The original taskkill file is a part of Windows, and a very small file. However, just to be sure that its not a malware file, as MC suggested in his post... you can scan the file with your antivirus, and antispyware programs like MBAM. Or, you can also upload the file to VirusTotal.

You can also take a note of the hash of the file, and then Google for the original hash, and compare the both. If they are same, you don't need to worry.
