4GB in use in Windows 10 is not unreasonable. 8GB RAM is considered a minimum acceptable amount with Windows 10.
If you want to lower you memory usage, look at the startup tab. Evaluate each item for need.
Search for guides on services which can be disabled.

I only get 20%-23% idle. Although I have spent days disabling as much unneeded services and programs as i can so its no surprise. Try disabling Superfetch (google this) and see what programs are starting on startup. Uninstalling programs can help too. A program like RamRush can help lower your ram use by 10-15% although it only last awhile till programs reopen. You can also get a cheap 4GB DDR3 stick to lower ram usage plus get an upgrade to 12GB ram.As a last resort I would reinstall Windows.

When i restart my idle is 23-24% and sometimes 57% or so

I have disabled startup programs that i don't need

This error just happens out of the blue, before this error my ram usage over 47% with google chrome open which is normal since google chrome eats so much ram but now when i open some few tabs (nothing heavy just open some website page) My ram goes up so much like 70% 80% and when i close google chrome my ram went down about 20% or so.
