I just created a new 500 GB partition+swap for Linux, and the partition wizard said that 18 GB of it had already been used up. Why is this? Also, 4 KB of the swap partition is already used (although not a big deal).

It should be completely empty (I assume you didn't actually install Linux yet). Maybe the partition wizard is reading it wrong, or messed up during the process. I would re do it and see what happens.

Nope, I haven't installed Linux yet. It must be reading it wrong because formatting it again gives the same result.

Ah well lol. Check out how much is being used when its done installing. I think Ubuntu should use less than 10 GiB of disk space when fully installed.
