Depends what you mean by "investing". If you're eligble for a company 401K/403B with matching that you're not currently contributing to, I would contribute up to the match. But after that, I would use any available extra monthly income to pay off the $4K.

The stock market is pretty high right now, so you're probably not missing out on a great buying opportunity.
