free memory is bad memory
if there is no running application reclaiming the ram ( which is your
case here ) , the kernel allocates the remaining memory to cache the
data from the filesystem, so as to make the disk access faster
as soon as applications require more memory the kernel will allocate
what they ask, and reduce the amount of memory used for the disk cache
so what you see is perfectly normal

The memory is just going to the disk cache. The system will release it
if something actually needs it. Otherwise, free memory gets used as
cache. There doesn't appear to be any evidence it's swapping.
