I've accidentally merged files into my branch. I don't know on which commit this happened.

You can view each commit and see which files were changed (as well as how they were changed). You can also browse your repository at the time of each commit, if you want to see which file versions were in there.

You can also get to the commits list by clicking Graphs at the top of your project page, then selecting the link under your username labeled xx commits where "xx" is the number of commits.
