    What is the thing in battery section that all the way at the bottom of the section that has like a little arrow and then a percentage (mine is 93%)
    I'm talking about the percentage number thats under the battery charge bar?

    Wouldn't it be the percentage of charge your battery currently holds?

    The up arrow would indicate that it's currently charging.

    It's for your bluetooth/battery operated keyboard.

    iStat’s battery section:
    This section shows various information about your Mac’s battery. This section is only visible if you actually have a battery and won’t appear on desktops.
    Percentage
    The current battery charge as a percentage. This is also shown as a bar at the bottom of the section.
    Time
    Time left using the battery, time until charged, or “Charged” if the battery is fully charged.
    Source
    “AC” if the Mac is connected to mains power, or “Battery” if the battery is being used.
    Status
    This shows if the battery is charged, charging or draining.
    Battery Health
    This is a comparison between your current battery capacity and capacity of it when it was new. For example, if your battery lasted 5 hours when it was new, a figure of 50% suggests you should get 2.5 hours out of your battery now.
    Cycles
    The amount of battery “cycles” the battery has had. One cycle is defined as a complete discharge and charge of the battery, but partial discharge and charges also count. So, two half discharge and charges are the same as one complete discharge.

    I'm thinking it's the Percentage display that you are making reference to.

    This is exactly right, it is the letter "A" and not a arrow.
    Turn off your bluetooth keyboard or mouse (both of them if you got them) and watch it go away.

    edit: little late to post this, glad ya figured it out:)
