You seem have been the victim of a scam, possibly a phishing exploit.  When you click on any object that wants to take money from you in Second Life, there is an automatic warning that pops up to advise you that you are about to give a specific person permission to debit your account.  To complete the transaction, you have to click a button to give your permission.  Unfortunately, it is easy for a newcomer to misunderstand what that means, especially if you are buying something in a shop and expect to be asked for money anyway.  It's also possible to simply get distracted and click "Yes" without thinking.

Once you've given money away, it's almost impossible to get it back.  As you have discovered, the transaction was recorded as a "gift".  If you can find the object that you clicked (if it's still there), you can identify it to Linden Lab in an Abuse Report.  With luck, they will sanction the person (probably ban him), and with more luck you'll get your money back.   Otherwise, I'm afraid you're out L$5000.
