Hi Salim.
There is a "unmount" option in the Gparted GUI or the disk manager (type "disks" in the search bar)

you can try this command from terminal
sudo swapoff -a
still have the key symbol ? if so try Live CD and use LVM manager GUI tool for the partition.

Hi Salim
I copied this from Ubuntu.com/lvm
Resizing Partitions

With gparted you can expand and shrink partitions, but only if they are not in use. LVM can expand a partition while it is mounted, if the filesystem used on it also supports that ( like the usual ext3/4 ). When expanding a partition, gparted can only expand it into adjacent free space, but LVM can use free space anywhere in the Volume Group, even on another disk. When using gparted, this restriction often means that you must move other partitions around to make space to expand one, which is a very time consuming process that can result in massive data loss if it fails or is interrupted ( power loss ).
