Logic Pro X ALWAYS clipping

Hey Ya'll I'm new to the whole mixing world and am completely stumped. Definitely need help. On Logic Pro X my tracks are always clipping. even when all my faders and master volume are turned all the way down they are still clipping. Everything is completely turned down but somehow I'm still getting crazy levels, thus when I turn the track up at all I'm already peaking leaving me with an embarrassingly quiet track. Any advice?

Is Pre-Fader Metering turned on so that you seed the level actually hitting the channel strips and outputs?

You’ve got pre fader metering on, and can see the source channels have been recorded extremely hot. Turn them down with clip gain and set to post fader metering

The Hornet VU Meter is another way to tackle this problem. I've got templates with one at the start of every channel strip, both for metering and reducing gain before hitting compressors & eq's that model analog devices - just another way to gain stage.
