From looking at the gparted screenshot, it appears that the SDA8 partition is the one you are wanting to shrink to create some unallocated space. The problem is that it's xfs, and according to this link I found, it can't be resized with gparted.
OOPS - the link didn't work, let me try and c/p the information -----
Shrinking an XFS partition
Is it possible to shrink an xfs partition?
I tried using gparted but it won't shrink.....

Re: Shrinking an XFS partition
Nope, sorry. XFS was designed for speed, and one of the things that is needed to keep that speed is to prevent resizing.
You could backup the drive to another one, delete the XFS partition, and recreate it with the new size. That currently would be the only option.
