Getting charged in aws

Hello,
I am getting charged for data transfer on was. It is a new account (1-month-old) and only has one instance (running discourse). This is what they say,

When you transfer data from AWS resources to the internet, you’re charged per service, with rates specific to the originating Region.

That’s exactly how AWS works. They charge you for the VM and for the outbound traffic.
