When i open task manager the CPU is on or around 50% and then within a second goes to 1% and stays at 1%, is this normal?
This happens even when im idle.

  1. You're catching it populating task manager
  2. You caught Windows 10 sneaking around so it went stealth.
Most likely #1 and mabey a bit of #2
Now while watching task manager open a window or app. How much processor now?

hard to know for sure, maybe it was 'system interupts' or maybe 'taskmanager', but im not sure as im only catching it when it gets down to 5%.

A look at second screen shows no CPU and yet still at 62%,
if I had to guess I'd say your CPU % is off by a factor of 62% and you were only at 4% CPU usage.
Something is reporting wrong, Motherboard, Chipset, driver or windows 10 has a bug.
  1. Update Bios
  2. Update Chipset drivers
  3. Reinstall windows
If you can live with it, wait and see it windows fixes itself thru updates.
