I don't think it's accurate, it can change all the time. Wouldn't worry about it. Just make sure you calibrate your battery every month.

It's perfectly normal for your battery health to fluctuate up and down over time. There are hundreds of threads on this. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

How do you calibrate the battery? :) Do you know if the Macbook Pro battery has a good battery like will it last a good amount of time?
