Save your data and then reset your mobile.

Its running out of internal storage. You can check under Settings -> Storage and check under internal storage.

There is no need to reset which would wipe all your apps and is a pain. I would look at an application called App2SD which may be able to move from applications from internal memory to SD card storage where you probably have plenty of space.

App2Sd will also clear your cache and free up some more space.
