As you open and view files in Dropbox on your phone, Dropbox will cache them on the device. While Dropbox will remove items from cache after a time, you can clear it manually from Settings within the app. If that doesn't clear all the storage used by Dropbox, uninstall and reinstall the app. Just know that any files you've marked as available offline will need to be remarked as such.

Try clearing the cache from Dropbox by going in to 'Personal and Settings (the cog button at the top)'
