    I'd say that's a little higher than average but not by much. Certainly nothing to worry about IMO. :)

    Apple claims that your laptop battery can be charged 300-400 times (a "load cycle") before it requires replacement. Hence, you are far from needing a new battery. Your rate of usage suggests at least 10 more months with your current battery.
