That number is telling you how many messages are on the GMail server in your account, not necessarily the ones you have in your in box. Unless you tell Mac Mail to remove messages from the server after they're downloaded, messages will remain on the GMail server in your account.

I personally like that because it allows me to go back in time and find messages that I may have misplaced or lost. Of course I also have to access my account from the Web every once in awhile and do some clean up. It's really up to you how you go about managing your GMail account.
