yes the extra weight you gained is just muscle...

your legs are burning fat and gaining muscle. you'll lose size in your thighs and whatnot, but the "weight" you're gaining is muscle (which weighs much more than fat). try not to judge your body by the number displayed on the scale. try measuring your thighs once a month or something. i promise they'll get smaller, and then they might actually grow in size a little but they will be toned and firm

What should i do to lose weight but not gain muscle?

On top of having a good and healthy diet as well as exercising, keep in mind that you will eventually gain weight in your legs at some point. While this is not an issue, if you are constantly weighing yourself to monitor your weight don't be discouraged by the stall that you may run into. It's simply your leg muscles strengthening due to the running. I am unsure as to how long this stall period will last for you, I assume its different for everyone but eventually you will push through it and begin losing weight again.
