Look up the difference between Gigabyte and Gibibyte - you'll find where your "missing" 50 GB went. Short answer: a 500GB drive, when formatted, amounts to 461 GiB = 500,000,000,000 bytes. Then you need to remove some spare clusters, the file system's metadata, recovery data etc.

You can 'shrink' your current single volume.

Shrinking your 451GB volume to 301GB will give you space for a 150GB partition.
