Having the last word is a reference to when a person...well, it can be a couple things: either they insist on being right, so they keep arguing until you stop talking so they "get the last word", or they always feel like they have to be the one to end a conversation, so they keep saying things wanting to be the last one to speak. It sounds like, if people are telling you this, that they either think you are trying to be right all the time, or that you keep talking even when you shouldn't, trying to be the one to end that conversation. I can't say that you are doing either of those things, but I would say maybe you should take a look at yourself and see if there's anything there that they could be basing this on and maybe try to change that.
