Sinking floor???

A gap has appeared between the baseboard and the floor near the doorway in my bedroom. It looks as if the floor is sinking! The split-entry house was built in 2003. Is there anyone out there who can enlighten me as to the possible reasons for this situation??

mellsworth .... it's very difficult to tell over the internet what exactly is the situation without seeing how and where things are located and framed.

There is a myriad of things that could be the cause ...... for example .... the wall with door could be sitting over the space between joists and on a joint between the sheets used for the sub floor ... which would be a weak point .... this just illustrates one of many possibilities without further information.
