Why it happens?

  1. Logical Reason: – Google Adsense algorithm decides which ad to display where based on its revenue calculation. It is possible that 90% of your space will be shown as yellow if it think that small ads can perform better there. After all what Adsense matters are revenue irrespective of banner size.
  2. Coding Reason :- Your ad code looks like this
*************************Ad code*********************
<ins class="adsbygoogle"

And your theme css code has following line of code:-

ins {
	background: #fff9c0;
	border: none;
	color: #333;

Clearly CSS added for ins has background: #fff9c0. This is the sole reason for white backgrounds. Do not change this, Rather add few more lines to your CSS as stated below.
