Ceiling Fan installation, 3 sets of wires in ceiling
If your description is correct then it likely is wired like the drawing below. Check the switch to see if only white and black connected to the switch. Now how you want the fan and light to work can be changed simply by minor wiring change it the fan box, the drawing shows the switch controlling both the fan and light and then either can be turned off if the fan has pull strings.
If you want the fan to come on only with the pull string then you would take the fan lead and connect it to the wire nut with the incoming power black and (hot) white to the switch and hot to the receptacle. This would put only the light on the switch....make sense??
