You may use the same PostgreSQL instance but not the same database.

I have integrated jira service desk from jira software itself.How do I know jira service desk is using which database in same instance.

JIRA Service Desk is an application that runs "on top of" JIRA Core so it does use the same database as JIRA. To see which database and server, check the Database URL on JIRA Admin>System Info. It will be  something like: jdbc:postgresql://<server>:<portnumber>/database_name

Can I make jira service desk to be installed in separate database.

No, the JIRA Service Desk (JSD) tables are added to the JIRA database when JSD is installed, and are dependent upon it. 

Please let us know what you would like to accomplish by installing it on a different database, maybe we can help with the use case.
