There may be nothing wrong with it. Most *nix distributions will use available ram for cacheing.

Its pretty normal.. All *nix servers try to use the avaible memory for caching for more speed. My server's is at a constant 71% minimum, unless your memory is running out and starting to use the swap space you should be ok.

if you still wish to view the processes sorted on the basis of memory usage, you first need to give top command and then shift + m

For this purpose you need to configure MYSQL config file to write logs , by default this doesnt write logs.

You can get more help from here

With logs you can see what domain are using mysql and how frequently
