Total Search vs. Total Display Network Costs
My Total Search Cost for a day is $6.83 while the Total Display Network Cost is $197.07. What is the Display Network Cost and why is it 98% of my daily budget? Is this normal for any campaign?
This means you are opted into serving your ads on the Search Network and the Display Network.
This thread explains the differences very nicely. If you are unhappy with the results of your Display Network, you can change your network settings at the campaign level and opt-out of the Display Network.
Hope this helps!

It is usually recommended to separate your Search and Display network campaigns into separate campaigns. You will find that visitors form the search network will respond very differently than visitors from the display network. When you run both networks within the same campaign, you do not have control of the network budgets individually--both will draw from the same budget.
I your case, I would highly recommended splitting your campaigns. This is probably even more important now that individual keywords in the DN will report impressions and clicks.
Best of Luck!
