    I just recently bought a new 13 inch macbook pro. Whenever i charge it too 100% all 8 lights on the side light up but after five-ten minutes of use it drops to seven. Why is this happening.

    That's normal.

    8 lights show 100% percent capacity, 7 lights show just 87.5% to almost 100% battery capacity.

    There is also a battery meter in the menu bar.

    Also calibrate your battery: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1490
