Pooling/staking issue

Hi,

I recently provided liquidity to the HNY/STAKE pool, and I notice that the amount I put in has decreased. For example, if I added 1 HNY and 2 STAKe, I now have 0.90 HNY and 2.1 STAKE. So by providing liquidity, I have lost money so far. Is this a glitch? Can someone please explain this to me before I exit the liquidity pool for fear of losing more?

Thanks
