I just added a Facebook like button to a website, and somehow it already has more than 300 likes, it's really strange because this website never had a like button on it in the past. Is there some sort of explanation as to why it wouldn't start at 0?

The likes are connected the URL. If you posted the link on Facebook and people liked it the likes will show-up when you put the Like button on your site.
