It seems like it is using the GPU, but you can use the script from the following link to make sure it is using GPU

There is also a package called gpustat that make is easy to look for GPU usage

$ gpustat

you can install it by using sudo pip install gpustat

It is using the GPU based on the value of Volatile GPU-Util above (which is 100%).
