First things first. Is that a problem? Is that query a problem?
If not, why are you worrying about it? The % cost has to be somewhere, it is a percentage.

This depends on a whole lot of factors, you're just not giving enough information.
Anyway, an index seek means the index is being used for what is has been build, so that's usually a good thing.

And remember, those costs are just estimated values. They don't represent a literal real-world performance metric. It's just a measure of what the optimizer thinks a given operation will cost based on the operation and the statistics presented to the optimizer.
