In brief: Yes

Most adults need at least 2000 iu daily and you will get that much.
A toxic level is 20, 000 iu daily or more and you are far below that amount.

In brief: Sure

That is a very reasonable dosage.
Pretty much everyone north of the 45th parallel needs to supplement their vit d as you don't get enough sunlight to make enough on your own.
