You do not have /root partition. You probably want to increase size of your / partition. You will have to boot from liveCD to resize these partitions. It must be safe, because you have a separate /boot partition, otherwise /etc/fstab may need to be updated with new UUID and/or grub reinstalled.

You have to do this in steps, not all at once, and you need to move any free space you want to add next to the partition(s) you want to add space to. First, you need to turn swap off, you can do this from the gparted menu. Next add the free space to the extended partition (sda4) -> apply changes. Then you need to move the swap partition so the free space ...
