If you are using iOS do the following:

Step 2-)
If you had given information about your device, we could help you more because we don’t know version of your phone, your OS, etc.. If your device’s OS is outdated, there can be a problem because of the proximity sensor. Update your Android or iOS version if there is any available.

Step 3-)
Try Clear Cache in Your Device because it is one of the best ways to get rid of this problem. For Android:
Settings – Apps (or App Manager) – WhatsApp – Clear Cache

Google Plus had some conflicts with WhatsApp & Facebook Messenger after the last update. We recommend you to remove recent updates of the application if you are using it because this may fix the problem.
