After I did a clean install of Sierra it first showed as 14 GB in size in "About My Mac Storage". After some few weeks it shows as 8 GB in size.

Why does happen like this and how do I fix it?

    I removed the less-than symbol from the body text to make your question complete. As for your question, perhaps some behind-the-scenes macOS activity deleted hidden cache files, swap files, and other temporary files. – IconDaemon Jul 15 '17 at 16:19
  • Yeah it could be because I was downloading many apps. – user244378 Jul 15 '17 at 16:28

    Before you can 'fix' it - how do you know one of those figures is 'broken' & which one? – Tetsujin Jul 15 '17 at 16:28
  • I don't understand what you are asking. – user244378 Jul 15 '17 at 16:29

The difference in size is similar to the High Sierra Installer, if you deleted the installer after the upgrade that might explain it
