Couldn't it be "I do anything"?

I believe "quelque chose" only translates to something.

I guess so, since "quelque" alone can be translated to "any".

I think anything is for negative or interrogative phrases

In portuguese, my mother language, "Je fais quelque chose" is very alike to "Eu fa├žo qualquer coisa", which is literally translated as "I do any thing [anything]".

This could also be "I am doing something" which makes more sense to me.
