Hello and welcome.

-Which version of OS X - macOS Sierra?
-Do you have any pro apps installed such as Logic Pro X or Final Cut Pro?
-Is Time Machine enabled, and if so, do you have an external drive selected for the backups?
-Do you have any third-party utilities like MacKeeper/CleanMyMac installed?

OK. You could download and install OmniDiskSweeper to see what is taking up all of the hard drive space. DO NOT use the built-in delete function to remove any files - please let us know what they are first. We can then tell you if it is safe to delete them.
