I've never used Squid but I'd imagine you could delete the contents of the cache folder.
Longer term though you'll need to find the config for the cache and tell it to keep less in there.
If I remember correctly it's not too good to have a massive cache either.

As for the store.log, ensure you have logrotate installed and configured correctly. The configuration for squid is probably in /etc/logrotate.d/squid
As for the disk cache.This is controlled by the cache_dir directive in your squid.conf file.
squid : cache_dir configuration directive

18 Gb of cache is *far* too much in any case. Suggest you cut down to 1Gb.

I once had my ISA cache set at 50Gb...
Now I have it switched off otherwise people get the wrong webpage when browsing, random pictures showing up and all sorts of weird problems.
