Assuming you have 500 pages that all have significant amounts of unique and relevant text with many, many websites linking to these pages then yes you should have more than 8 pages indexed.

Assuming your site is relatively new and doesn't have alot of quality content or links (internal & external links) that only having 8 pages indexed sounds normal.

To boost the amount of your pages that are indexed you should:

1) ensure each page has paragraphs of unique text not found anywhere else
2) build a strong link profile including links from external sites and properly interlink your internal pages

good luck
