Looks like most of your CPU is used up by php5-fpm, which is executing your PHP, or in this case your Wordpress site.

If you’ve loaded a lot of different modules/plugins into Wordpress some of them can be very large CPU consumers. So you may want to play around with disabling and removing some of them to see if your performance improves.

Unfortunately some plugins really aren’t written in the most efficient manner and even with low traffic can cause high CPU consumption.

You can also increase your droplet size to get more resources as well.
