I think that is the correct RPM for the speed. Yes you do have a four speed trans, but it starts out in second, not first, so your shift count is right.

To have it start out in first, from a standing start, mash the gas pedal and you will feel and notice the transmission "dropping down" a gear and a sudden surge of acceleration.

This arrangement is for economy.
