Before I left for school, I played a couple of things to pass the time and everything sounded perfect. I came back from school and found that both my G and high E string sounded like they were muted when the amp wasn't on. When I tried it on the amp, it sounded muted. I checked everything and couldn't find any problem at all. it's a Squier Strat with Ernie ball Hybrid Slinky strings that changed around a month or two ago.

hmm.. maybe something went wrong with the neck. Do these strings sound muted while pressing on various frets throughout the neck?

your bridge might need a little adjustment

Could be a lot of things. Old strings with a lot of gunk on em could be a culprit, but they'd sound more lifeless then muted.

Could be a neck adjustment issue. Could be the bridge. Could be action height. It's difficult to know with the info given. I doubt it's the type of strings you use, especially if your B string isn't doing it also.

I've checked the bridge and nothing there. Adjusted Action and nothing happened. Changed strings and nothing changed. I've had this guitar for about 2 years now and only recently started doing it.
