That is not a known issue. You could try resetting preferences. (Preferences > General > Reset Preferences on Quit, and then re-launch Photoshop and try again.)

From what I can see everything works fine, black color is hiding what is on top image and revealing what is on beneath layer or perhaps I do not see well what is going on because thumbnails are too small?

@Hahoka 

 

If you're talking about a Layer Mask, the quick way is Ctrl+I (shortcut for Image menu > Adjustments > Invert). Make sure you are on the mask, not the image.

 

I'm not sure if the default for the reveal and hide colors are controlled by the Swatches or not. Can you type "D" to reset the Foreground and Background swatches and see if that makes a difference when you create a new layer mask?

 

If your question is about something else, please clarify.
