Same thing happened to me. I was over 3000 views yesterday and now I'm at 2700.. So dumb. Probably just another glitch in their algorithm again. :(

It's not really a glitch, it's more the algorithm doing it's thing. Those views (usually) aren't real. Some come from you editing the description and such, which loads the video. Some come from bots and other things. If you pay attention you'll notice that happen a lot. No worries though because your real views will (almost) always be counted.

It's happening to a lot of people, even on a larger scale. I saw on Casey Neistat's twitter today he lost millions of views for no reason.

YouTube normally clears away views from bots or views from accidentally clicking on the wrong video - my theory is that they fell behind again and are clearing up several week's worth, just like the great subscriber purge of Summer 2016.

If you look at your counts for the past week, there was a glitch that added too many for a couple days. It has just been corrected. It's been talked about in a few places.
