    I had to take out the AC adaptor for a little bit. The battery went down to 95% when I was able to plug it back in. It now says "Battery is not charging," is this wrong? Or does it do this because 95% does not warrant a charge?

    Yes that's normal. Very small charges aren't good for the battery, so the laptop won't start charging the battery until it's below 93% usually.

    Thanks.

    1 more question:
    My battery charged to 100% my first 2 days (this is my 3rd day with my MBP), now it only charges up to 99%, thats normal too I'm assuming?

    Unplug it, let it drain down to 85% or so, then plug it back in and let it charge. It should charge to 100% after that. (sometimes the charge from 99% to 100% takes a while)
