Default RNA-Seq alignment issue

Hello all,

I have been given paired-end RNA-Seq files to align against a couple of references. I used Bowtie2 to do the job. The alignment results were very low in most of the cases (less than 5% overall alignment rate).Now, we are thinking this might be caused by either contamination or mix up samples.

Any suggestion what to do in such case?
Thank you in advance
