Is it normal to have like 4-6 of them running GT500? :/

Yes, it's very normaly to have more than 4 svchost.exe's running. It's also a target for malware to mimick, so that it is harder to spot the malware, as it just looks like another copy of svchost.exe running.

Here is a good description from Microsoft of what svchost.exe does, and why so many might be running. :)
