Here the 99.7% column is cpu & 7.7% column is memory.

The specification of my computer is as follows

Intel corei3-330M
4 GB memory
1 GB Nvidia gt325m(have not installed driver, because it tends to mess with system)

Can anyone explain whats going on here? Is this type of resource usage normal?

it became ok after an hour or so. I have just installed my system yesterday night. Maybe something to do with that

That would most likely have been the tracker miner registering all your files.
