This is normal and to be expected.Even if you rarely print in color on purpose, color inks are still used even in black and white prints, as it mixes all the colors together to give a deeper black. Even if you set the preferences to use only black ink, every time the machine prints or is turned on/off, it runs through a cleaning cycle which uses ink as well.If it did not, the system would dry out and clog up, resulting in damage. If you are opposed to this process, you could consider replacing the printer with a black only laser printer. I can recommend some options for you, if you'd like. Nathan
