Every once in a while this happens for me too.

What I do is on the toolbar for android studio go to Tools -> Android -> Sync Project with Gradle Files (May take about 20-30 seconds to complete)

Or build -> rebuild project (May also take some seconds)

If this doesn't work it might be something in an xml file.

This is all the info I can give. :)

Try cleaning the project. That will fix it right away. If it doesn't then your .xml files are probably having some bad code which will neat to be fixed after which you can clean the project again to test if the issue is resolved!
