If you already have that swap partition, just leave it there and your new distro will use it. You can have one swap for as many distros as you have on the machine!
(Since you only use it with one distro at a time, you don't need more than one.)
However, there seems to be some discrepancy in the measurements, unless you already have 2 swap partitions. Free says 12 GB, discs (with which I'm not familiar)
says 8.5 GB. If you have two swap partitions, you can delete one and make it part of your usable disk space. I think you could safely delete the larger one.
Parenthetically, I sort of liked Mint, but I thought it was somewhat limited. You might try Korora. But that's up to you, of course.
