Just reply back to the emails mate and tell them you are using your phone and not tethering.

You will need to contact an agent at https://giffgaff.com/support/ask and discuss this issue with them. If you have been warned, there is a possibility that your internet service maybe barred if they continue to suspect that you are tethering. It could be that you got the warning because you used a lot of data in a short period of time.

I think they will block your account 48 hours after the warning so you'll need to respond to the email and raise a case with an agent pretty quickly if you want to stay connected.
