You definitely need to replace the keyboard on the system.If your system still within warranty and you have Complete Care warranty from Dell this will be covered, if not you may need to pay for it or purchase a keyboard part.
I don't recommend to replace the laptop keyboard if you are not very familiar with hardware, though step by step instruction are available in net.
First check whether your laptop is still covered under warranty. If so, search the authorised service provider of your laptop model near to your place. And get the keyboard replaced by them. Sometimes you'll get it for free, if it is manufacturing defect.

Need to change the keyboard of your laptop. It's usaly very simple in less then 2 minutes. need some very small screwdriver ( check under the laptop the screw with the keyboard sign). You will need to buy a new (or used) keyboard from a computer store or directly from your laptop factory, witch I prefer. When getting the new one, unscrew the those screw under the laptop. Turn the laptop and open the screen up so you see the keyboard. Don't start the laptop.
Laptop are different, but when screw are out, you should manage to pull out the keyboard.
Some times you have (on HP's) 4 slides that push the keyboard down. Slide them outside with a small flat screwdriver. And gently took the keyboard up with your fingers. Now VERY carefuly, look at the back of the keyboard, you should see a cable connected to the mother board or so. Gently pull it out... check if some pins block it if it's not comming out easy. Do this carefuly, it is the only tricky part, you don't want to brake the connectors. Put the new keyboard in the opposite steps. Rescrew it and start the laptop tadada.
