    Batteries don't fail all of a sudden. You probably just need a new charger.

    Reset the SMC. Recharge and calibrate your battery. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    Assuming you make an appointment with the genius bar beforehand and you say that to the genius, yeah. Go ahead and do that. But also bring in your MacBook Pro for warranty purposes...

    The steps for resetting the SMC are in the link posted at the bottom of the CHARGING section in the FAQ I posted. The calibration steps are in the FAQ, as well.

    It could be dead. I'd reset the SMC and if the problem persists, take it in to either a Genius Bar or an Apple Authorized Service Provider. Those things are rated to last 1000 cycles and you're only at 541.
