Default High swap usage.

Good day all...

I have a brand new linode, 360 MB of RAM, Ubuntu 9.04 ISCponfig3 perfect server. I have configured 5 websites (basic) in ISCPconfig admin interface. Only small email traffic for one domain (1 mailbox).
This server is already chewing into my swap and I have memory left.
So just for laughs.. Last night I increased my memory to 450 MB. My swap space is still being sucked up.. (see my free -m below)
From my research. There should be no reason why my swap is being utilized. Is there some rouge application/service that is slighted on using my swap?

Any direction would be great...

free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 450 414 35 0 22 77
-/+ buffers/cache: 315 134
Swap: 255 82 173
