Start up disc says 249.2 gigs out of 500. How do I get the full use of the entire disc? No, I did not partition the disc.

My Startup disk reads 249.2 out of 500. Why the **** is this? I paid $1,600 for this machine & getting only half the drive space that I paid for. No, the thing is not partitioned & I use an external drive for Time Machine backup. How do i get the full use of the disc? And please no annoying lengthy answers with a bunch of technobabble, I require a simple & easy solution.
