    Every morning I turn on my computer and allways plug in the charger, well one day it will show a full charge and the light will be green than the next day Ill plug it in and the light stays orange and the meter will stay at 99% for a long time before it will show a full charge. My concern is I allways leave it on a charge when Im using it. Are there any reall concerns here ? My Macbook is only 6 months old.

    I'd let the battery run down and then calibrate it.

    If your battery is already calibrated, I don't see any problem here.
    There is no perfect way to store electricity so even if you don't use it, the battery would run down and eventually run out of power.
    You shouldn't leave the power plugged in all the time. According to Apple, this batteries actually benefit from being used. The example of a good battery usage the mention is someone using their laptop every morning while on the train to work and then plugging it in at the office. I would recommend to unplugged it at least one or two hours a day.
