Yeah I changed a part of the water and it looks well much much better ( I think it's a dust from
The gravel and the red brown wood root in the aquarium ) ...

Water changes to bring it down to .25ppm or less. Test everyday to check an if it's high again do more water changes.

Yes it is. In a new tank/filter there is no bacteria to consume the ammonia your fish produce so it builds up to toxic levels. Some bacteria slowly start to grow (mostly in the filter) and consume/eat the ammonia turning it into nitrIte. Then the nitrIte builds up to toxic levels as a second kind of bacteria grows and consumes the nitrIte tuning it into nitrAte. The nitrAte is then removed with weekly water changes.
The whole process takes 4-8 weeks (sometimes longer).
