    That is normal behaviour, battery capacity is not always reported correctly and does fluctuate.

    It is perfectly normal if your battery health (maximum capacity) is more or less than 100%, even when brand new, or if it fluctuates up or down over time. For further details, read the CHECKING STATUS AND HEALTH section of the Apple Notebook Battery FAQ that simsaladimbamba posted. This FAQ was posted in at least 2 other threads you've started, so I really recommend you take the time to actually read it this time.
