The cache is essentially harmless, it will only increase the performance of your system and is intelligently managed without your interaction - there's no reason to worry about it. As long as you're not swapping (which you aren't), you should be good to go.

I recommend reading this:

Cache memory is not really "used", because it will get dumped immediately if an application needs to use that memory. It does help by speeding up disk reads of commonly accessed files and what not.
