It's OK.
So, Avaliable 6419 + Used 1.6GB = 8GB Total.
You can use all 8GB of RAM memory. And yes, I think that graphic card is using some of your ram memory because it's integrated.

That is normal as system properties just shows what is installed, not how much is being used.

The best way to look at your RAM is in Resource Monitor > Memory tab. On the colored graph, everything that is blue (light and dark) is available.

Example:
