Computer losing free space and taking up too much RAM

The free space in my computers HDD is messing up, at one point it's at 10 gb, then 5, then 2, then 3, sometimes it would even go down to a few kilobytes, to make matters worse, the computer has been using an awful lot of RAM lately, with around 14 svchosts.exe, it's no wonder. I've tried running both malwarebytes and MSC but those didn't solve the problem despite detecting a few threats. Any help would be appreciated.
