The speakers should mute when you plug in your headphones (assuming they are not USB headphones).
My experience is that when this failure to automute happens, it is often due to the automatic alsa sound driver configuration upon boot not accurately configuring one's audio configuration.
There is a way to force one's audio configuration upon boot, but to know what setting to apply one needs to know more detail on the hardware/software setup.
With your laptop connected to the Internet, can you please send the following command as a regular user in a terminal:
and select the SHARE/UPLOAD option, and then when the diagnostic script is completely finished read the terminal message at the end and it will tell you of a WEB SITE/ URL address that you need to pass to those providing you support. Please post here that WEB SITE/ URL address .
