If it is terminal emulator under X I would check the font configuration,
if you mean VT then /etc/vconsole.conf is the place to look at.

On the other hand, I would check what was updated around the time things
started looking weird, maybe you caught a bug, or font handling changed.

I would also check other terminal emulators, preferably with different
dependencies to try a rule out any bug in the dependencies.
