Question: system storage

My MacBook air has 141GB of used storage under the category "system". I don't have that much stuff on my laptop and its taking up more than half of my storage and i have no idea what it is. Does anyone know how to fix this or what it might be?

Use safe mode to isolate issues with your Mac (formerly: Try safe mode if your Mac doesn't finish starting up (formerly: What is Safe Boot, Safe Mode? (Mac OS X))) - http://support.apple.com/HT201262

I had something similar happen once and it was a runaway system log. Try Safe Mode and then restart normally. If that doesn't happen then you may have to do exploring in the system files.
