Looks like you are disturbed with Heads Up (new feature) notifications. It will show a pop up notification on your screen. You can turn it off by Upgrading to any custom ROM or you can use HeadsOff app. Which looks like a workaround for turn off Heads Up notifications. I haven't tried this yet. But please take a look.

What you're talking about sounds like "Heads Up". This is a new Android feature that shows notifications easier. You can't turn this off unless you have Android M. But you shouldn't have Android M because the S5 doesn't get this update. The only other option is to run a custom ROM such as cyanogenmod.

Install the DO app: https://ifttt.com/products/do/button. Inside it create a DO recipe using a channel called 'IF notifications'. Set a message and you're ready to go - every time you'll hit that button, a notification will be posted. Tip - you can enable a floating button for this recipe too to make it more accessible.
