If the OS is low on Memory (RAM) it can borrow some of the hard drive to create virtual memory. It uses some of the hard drive to simulate RAM, this is stored in a file on the hard drive called a swap file or page file. There are ways to disable this feature but I would recommend that you leave it how it is.
