I'm using a video chat . I use upload of video and download also. I thought that the upload would not slow down the download but using speedtest.net I see that
the download test is down to 3.5 Mb/sec and if I turn off the upload video I get about 12 Mb/Sec.

Is that normal or is there an ISP issue?

Yes, uploading/downloading while performing a throughput test (like with speedtest) will impact the results. Since you have stuff in the "pipe", the amount the test can use is lowered. Likely nothing to be concerned about.
