Credit Karma Checks do Hurt Your Score

I have been reading that credit karma does not hurt your credit score, but every time I go on credit karma, I get a red box with -10 in it off my score. Like just now my score was 715 and when I accessed the site it immediately dropped to 705. It drops 10 every time I go on the website. And part of the reason I go on Credit Karma is because I will get an email and I go to look at the email and immediately 10 points are deducted. I am looking to buy a house in the next year and I just recently got a second credit card and I had thought I missed a payment on my 1st credit card and when I checked credit karma, I got 10 points taken off when they advertise that it doesn't hurt your score....well it sure hurts mine.
