Default when I plug in guitar to record, waveform way way off!

whenever I set up a audio mono track and record, I can turn the volume all the way down on the interface, and just lightly tap the strings and the waveform as its recording looks completely bold, and it only looks normal when the guitar is not being plucked, im not sure what to do, anyone ever have this problem?

Check that you don't have the waveform zoom on as that is usually something people miss as have we in the past
