Your computer will use the memory in the most efficient way it can. If you go to Control Panel - Administrative tools - Performance, you will see a graphical representation of the memory and cpu usage. They will both vary according to what the computer is doing at the time. My computer memory usage is ticking over at about 10% (of 768M) while it is idling, so if yours is using 342M I would expect it to be doing something quite busy. Mine peaks to 100% while it's loading an application like Word.

Be very wary about downloading software that claims to optimise your computer - some is good but a lot is no better than malware.
