Both ocd and kleptomania have roots in anxiety, with biological components.

In brief: Consultation
If you have concerns about these symptoms it would be in porn for you to talk to either your primary care doctor or seek individual therapy from a licensed psychologist or social worker. Both of these issues are treatable.
