    It’s not a problem, that’s how WordPress operates. It creates multiple image sizes so that the right size is served depending on the screen size viewing it.

    For example, let’s say you uploaded an image that was big enough to fit most desktop monitors. It would be a waste of bandwidth to serve that huge image to a phone with a screen that’s a fraction of the size. Instead, WordPress will serve one of the smaller versions that it automatically created.

    This feature, referred to as Responsive Images, was added in WordPress 4.4: https://wordpress.org/news/2015/12/clifford/
