This is expected behaviour. You're simply misinterpreting what you're

* If a program needs RAM, the kernel gives it the RAM. It takes first
from free memory, then from the disk cache.
This keeps things as fast as possible.
No system that has been up and in use for any appreciable amount of time
will show much "free" RAM. /proc/meminfo only reports the total amount
of memory in use, including caching. It will not tell you how much
