Could be a problem if any of your apps under /usr want to generate some big error logs etc.

Those are all horrible numbers and the sign of an over sold machine.

/usr partition

The /var/log is at 89% so yes it would be a good time to either clear or gzip -9 your log files. The 99% in /usr would scare me if I had any apps running there but not if it's just the normal OS binarys.
If you do have aplications that run in /usr or any sub-directory of it you might want to consider moveing them into a subdirectory off of /home/you_username/
Just looking at the numbers thought that is a VERY loaded disk.

It's time to yard out the unneeded junk.
