Is my MBA mid-2012 Battery Normal?

Hello! Got my MBA for Thanksgiving and have been using it extensively, always on when I am at home and sleeps when I am at work.

Today I happen to check the battery status and it reads as follows -

Cycles - 38
Health - 95%

Below is the snapshot from System Information -
Battery Information:

Model Information:
Serial Number:
Manufacturer: SMP
Device Name:
Pack Lot Code: 0
PCB Lot Code: 0
Firmware Version: 406
Hardware Revision: 000a
Cell Revision: 162
Charge Information:
Charge Remaining (mAh): 6370
Fully Charged: Yes
Charging: No
Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 6382
Health Information:
Cycle Count: 38
Condition: Normal
Battery Installed: Yes
Amperage (mA): -487
Voltage (mV): 8314

The part that worries me is highlighted in Red, for a month old MBA is it fine to have the Battery condition as Normal instead of Good?

My MBA is almost always plugged in, but runs on battery for an hour or so daily, and for 4-5 hours on battery couple of times a week.

What am I doing wrong? is the battery faulty? Any help would be appreciated.
