It means your database was once 134 GB big, but now it contains only for 10GB on data.
When data is deleted, space isn't automatically released. You can shrink your database files, but there are a whole bunch of reasons not to do that. (index fragmentation is one of them).

If you think your database will never be this big again, you can use DBCC SHRINKFILE.
