It's totally fine to mix different swap files and partitions. They'll just add on to the amount of total swap space you can use

You're fine. You can have up to 32 swap spaces, which can be any mix of partitions, devices, and files. As you can see from the "swapon -s" output, your file currently has a lower priority than the partition, which is probably a good thing.
