I have come across one rare incident while i'm doing some work with SharePoint 2013 library and the issue is i'm getting same GUID's for 3 files while retrieving files information from the library. Can anyone explain is this possible in Sharepoint ?

Thanks in advance.

I have a couple of links which might prove useful for you. This blog post describes the same issue you have, it sounds a bit worrying - read the part under the heading 'Predicament': finding duplicate GUIDs,

The other link is to our beloved SP Stack Exchange Find document by GUID - I think this is useful for some background knowledge on GUIDs, there are additional links given in some of the answers.

Good luck
