I did my first icloud backup last night and it was only 1.6gb. But icloud says I only have 35mb left and I should buy more space. Why is this? I should have 3.4gb left.

Go to Manage Storage in iCloud settings on your iWhatever and it will tell you what's using what.

Remember that Mail and Contacts/Calendar storage takes up space too.

The whole backup collectively was 1.6gb.

Anyone? it's just not making sense to me.

Very odd. Mine seems to more or less tally up. Maybe try resetting it - either remove the backup from Manage Storage, or I think if you turn iCloud backup off it gives you a choice to remove the old backups. Then turn on and try again.

Thanks, i solved the problem by just doing the backup a second time. Took about 2 hours, but fixed the storage issue.
