go ahead and delete a large file (preferably not important) and reboot your machine. If the HD capacity is still sinking down then you have an issue with 1: your HD or 2: The machine is not rewriting information into the newly available blocks of space. If the reboot doesn't show that it is returning to normal then I would suggest backing everything up and reinstalling. If it is showing that the space is being recovered then it is a setting that is showing you the taken HD space rather than the availble HD space and if the reinstall doesn't work then I would return the product back to Apple for HD failure.
