Swap the wires at the outlet. Black wire to brass colored screw, white wire to silver colored screw.

If another outlet is ganged to this one, make sure it too is wired black to brass, white to silver at this outlet, or by correcting the first outlet you will reverse the polarity of the second outlet.
