Offset showing distance using XY coordinates

Greetings. I have always had offset show dimension based on line/object it is offsetting from. However, as of today, it is showing the distance based on my XY position. For example, if my original line is at 106', 174'...when I offset this vertical line to the left, the coordinates are reading 103', 174'. 

 

How do I get this back to showing me that the distance is 3' (from original line) not that it is 103' from X? I think I tapped a function key by accident and that started this whole mess. I've searched high and low with no luck. Any help is most appreciated. - Thanks

 

Screen shot attached.
