No, use separate USB drives.

Leave the USB drive with Linux Mint alone.

Put the GParted ISO on another USB drive and do the partitioning first.

boot with the Mint USB drive and select TRY (the username is mint and the password is blank/empty. Just press Enter). Do not Install. Then go to Menu and find GParted:

Menu > Administration > GParted.

Do the partitioning with 4 partitions and then reboot, this time choosing Install.

Why overcomplicate? You can let Mint installer partition the drive automatically for you.
