This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Have you deleted any questions? – Adam Rackis Mar 27 '12 at 20:23
I've deleted 2 i believe – Billjk Mar 27 '12 at 20:24
It also counts questions that others deleted on your behalf. – cdeszaq Mar 27 '12 at 20:27
@Null - thanks for looking - I seem to recall a proposal to let users see deleted questions on their profile - might have been useful here – Adam Rackis Mar 27 '12 at 20:31

The 50 question limit includes questions you've asked, and then subsequently deleted.

I'll bet a hefty sum that you've deleted* at least 5 questions in the last 30 days.

*or, as cdeszaq points out, others may have voted and deleted questions for you

If you had any deleted questions, it counts towards the 50 question limit.
