If you are in FULL recovery mode; database log will continue to grow unless you backup the transaction log

If you do not need point in time recovery, you may to switch to simple recovery mode

Also Rebuilding the index may cause this. Use SORT_IN_TEMPDB option when rebuilding indexes

Refer the article in case
