Looks like a corrupted config file. Try to create a new panel and drag the widgets from one panel to another. If that doesn't help, create a new panel and add new widgets. If that doesn't help, then you might need to delete plasma config files (make a backup).

rm -f ~/.kde/share/config/plasmarc    
rm -f ~/.kde/share/config/plasma-appletsrc
