Send a copy of your site in to the Copyright office along with a copyright registration as soon as possible as this will allow you some recourse under U.S. Copyright and the DMCA if the other site looks exactly like yours or if it uses some of your material. Of course if you used a seperate designer you should have made sure the contract stipulated that all copyrights for the site design were transfered to you.

If the other site does what your site does but does not use your design elements nor any material from your site, there isn't much you can do.
