yeah svchost is normal to be running that many processes. They are the shell processes that host the services that your computer runs. You can see the services that they contain by right clicking on one and selecting 'go to services'.

You have 77 processes running. Here is a suggested list of services that you can either disable or start manually when needed:

Also, Process Explorer will tell you what all the svchost files are.
