GFCI Resets when I turn light switch off

Newbie

Hi,

 

I just installed the GFCI.  When the light switch is in the ON position I hit reset and the light goes on.  Whey I turn the light switch OFF the GFCI trips.  If I try to reset with the light switch OFF it just keeps tripping.  So the only way to have power in the light and receptacle is keep the light switch ON then press reset.  To turn off I hit test.  Is it defective?
