You can wait and see if it comes back. But if it were my system I would take it in and have Apple look at it.

Batteries age and can fail regardless of the number of cycles. Are you seeing any case swelling or deformation, or have issues with the keyboard or trackpad? If so, these would indications that the batteries are swelling and need to be changed. This is which would likely be a top case (battery, keyboard, trackpad, and Al case where you hands rest) replacement. It is fixed price. https://support.apple.com/mac/repair/service
