    Unfortunately, that's a natural process of using the battery. But don't take the battery out of your laptop.

    Battery doesn't live forever. They degrade overtime so no worries....

    Don't worry about it too much. Possibly try and calibrate your battery to get a bit of extra life out of it.

    Your battery capacity is actually higher than it should be, it should be around 96% by now, so well done! :)

    Is the software free to test your battery? "coconut battery"

    It appears as though my battery capacity is growing. Take a look at maximum capacity, and original capacity above.

    No, "original" is just what your battery is rated to provide. A brand new battery will usually provide slightly more than the specs indicate. It's a matter of not wanting to overpromise and underdeliver.
