    Yes this is perfectly normal. When a system first boots all the memory
    your apps aren't using is initially free. As applications access more
    data over time then it will be cached in memory until free memory drops
    to near zero.

    "Free memory" is actually wasted memory - it's better to use all
    available RAM for caching.
