I am assuming you are confused because you expect the USD to be stronger with the higher interest rates.
I had the exact same issue as you just a few months ago. The simplest way to clarify this is that the forward market is created on a NO arbitrage basis.
By logic, we assume that the country with the higher interest rates attracts more foreign investments and thereby appreciating that country's currency. The forward market is there to prevent arbitrage opportunities like this where you can invest in the higher interest rate country and simultaneously hedge your exchange exposure by going into a forward contract that allows you to exchange back into your own currency for higher interest profits.
By arbitrageurs who look to do this, the forward market should have high demand for GBP/USD (they are trying to lock in rates) and therefore GBP/USD increases instead of lowers. The calculation of forward prices takes this into account and that is why you have forward rates that do not align with your expectations.
Note also that forward rates are by no means an indication of future prices. They are simply there mostly as a hedging tool. The currency with the higher interest rates can most definitely end up appreciating against against the lower interest rate currency even though the forward markets says otherwise. For more information on this you can do a google search on Japaneses Yen against USD which is an interesting read.

I suggest you read through BOTH covered and uncovered interest rate parities to fully understand.
