At 50% you are safe. What I would suggest if you haven't already done so is partitioning the drives for various functions to keep your speed up. I have a seperate partition for the operating system, programs, music, videos, games, personal etc. Are you having problems that lead you to ask?

Need more information, like the size of the drives.  Odds are it is one drive with two partitions.  If that is the case then they are really the same hardware.  Things that you would move to the D: drive would be data, pictures, music, movies.  Then you add the new locations to your Libraries to make them easy to access and your default save location.

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  When the  FileHippo website opens, click on Download latest version in the upper left pane.
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

Your C: drive is a 298GB Seagate which has 81% free space.  

 

I don't see any problems.
