Left page artwork will not extend to bleed?

Hey guys- I am fairly new to InDesign. I am working on a 108 page document (a book, facing pages) and when I signed in today I noticed all of the artwork on the left hand pages is just a hair below the bleed, when I try to adjust to it the bounding box stretches to wherever I pull, and turns orange/yellowish but the artwork does not extend. I cannot get it to meet the bleed. The right hand page is perfect, and yesterday the left was perfect as well- I even have my printed draft. Anybody knows why or how this happened and what I can do to fix it? Or if it will even make a difference when printing? I do NOT want a white border around this design, I want full page bleed. The only thing I changed today was I added 2 more pages

You DO have bleed, so there's no worry about there being a white border. However, you may be looking at the wrong thing.

The "orange" edges are showing you the actual image inside your graphic box. This shows when you use the Direct Select Tool. Instead, use the Selection Tool to see the graphic box itself and resize it accordingly.

While you're at it, you might want to resize the Graphic Box for the right page as well, so it stops at the fold line, instead of overlapping the left a bit as it does now.
