    I just got a used macbook air 2014 last week and when i got it the battery was around 175 cycles.
    Its covered in warranty until June.

    So i just noticed today that the battery of my macbook air is going over its design capacity.
    I tried searching it on the internet but the closest thing i could find was articles about the new ipad.

    So my question is: Is this sign of a faulty or dying battery? Can i get it replaced at an apple store? Thanks.

    No, that's a good sign :)

    Many batteries in excellent condition hold a tiny bit more than the official capacity. This is due to normal variations in the manufacturing process. You have nothing to worry about.
