Why would I lose internal storage for no reason?

...At least, no reason I can understand, LOL.

I had 50% storage left last night, and added nothing to phone but a couple photos, which I assume are on sd card, and now my internal storage stat (on quick settings) says 44%.

what uses internal storage besides apps? i deleted my text threads...are my gmail emails stored on internal storage? if so, how do i remove them?

what else should i know/do? thanks so much! (very new to this phone and android...sorry if these questions seem dumb.)
