    One of your drive belts is slipping, probably the x but it could be the y. Firstly check the tension as they should not be too slack and adjust as necessary then check for how smoothly the extruder/heated bed runs on the rods.
    My belt tension was fine but I had problems with my extruder sticking/slipping that caused the same problem you have. When I moved my extruder across the bed (by hand) I could feel it stick then free up. I sprayed loads of Silicone lubricant into the bearing block from each side while moving it back and forth and it helped a lot and I haven't had it happen again since.

    Yes, that's called "loosing steps". Either the belts are too loose, like Bob suggested, or the electronics are too hot (ie. not enough ventilated).
