SourceTree detects file difference wrongly in random

It could be that changes in white space are detected, which are not visible to the plain eye.

Try selecting "ignore whitespace" on the tools (gear wheel) menu in the upper right corner of your screenshot. If the changes disappear, it's maybe a change from tabs to spaces or vice versa.

And even i click "Discard", it cannot restore. It is always changed automatically.
