The traditional linux tool is "top" (run it in a terminal window).
There are other things like the gnome-system-monitor applet you can
add to the panel in gnome sessions (and probably something similar
for kde as well), but the applets tend to just show summary info,
which top you can see which specific processes are hitting the

Sounds high to me. Just sitting here typing this, my cpu usage
occasionally hits 4% (but this is a desktop, don't know what is
normal for laptops). There are also a lot of things that run
periodically to check for updates, make the "whatis" database,
things like that, so one or more of those may be running.
