Seems strange it was working fine a week ago then this started happening.

So what I need to do is make an adjustment on the bottom of my base clamps right.

Another question how do you know if your base and swivel clamps are over-worn?
based on your flurry of questions (no offense, btw), I'd say they are not worn out and need some minor adjustment.

This is done bu turning the small hex screw in the side of the base clamp (the screw should have a black plastic plug covering it and it's at the big round end of the base clamp).

You'll have to tirn the base clamp so it's a 90 degrees to the table edge with the string clamp end pointing to the center of the table.

I can't recall the hex wrench size, it's fairly small and will be metric. you will barely need to turn it, most likely. Clockwise to tighten.
