    I recently got my Mac on the 3rd of September. It's been plugged in since. I noticed that the battery capacity was 97%, so I downloaded Coconutbattery and it said that the mac had been through one Loadcycle (which is correct). However, there was another fact that alarmed me; It said that the Macbook Pro, which I have now owned for 11 days, is 4 months old.

    Should I be concerned about this?

    I was wondering because if this was a refurb, and I didn't get the discount normally associated with a refurb, I'd be losing out on some 100-200 dollars.

    Bought it from the Apple store.

    It may have been sitting on a shelf for 4 months. I wouldn't worry about it.

    The reported age isn't always accurate. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions: Apple Notebook Battery FAQ

    Contact Apple and tell them what you've told us. Usually they'll just update their database and put your warranty in-sync with your purchase date, at worst, they'll ask you to make in a copy of the receipt as proof.
