There is a ground wire coming from the box and is attached to the green screw (grounded). There is also a ground wire coming out of the light fixture loose and not connected to anything. Is this ok?

No. If a ground wire is present, it has an intended function.

Pigtail the lamp and box wires together with the grounding conductor in the cable.
