    If you plug your Mac in when the battery is anywhere between a 95% and 100% charge, it doesn't charge it further. This is to save wear and tear on your battery. It's normal.

    If it *really* bothers you, unplug your Mac, use it on battery for a few until it gets to 94%, then plug it in.

    Yea it's fine

    I'm never at 100% unless it's been running on battery for a while and then recharged.

    That's the way mine acts as well. Enjoy your new Mac!
