Warm ambient, laptop = not all that surprising.

Make sure the exhaust vent isn't blocked. Alternatively you can buy a cooling pad.

No, nothing to worry about, but to put your mind at ease, you could buy one of these:-

Belkin Laptop Cooling Stand in Black With High Capacity Fan (F5L001erBLK): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

I have one for the laptop and it reduces temps by at least 5 degrees Celsius. I also use it to keep my PS3 cool.

That looks perfectly fine to me with your current ambient temperature....

Here's a capture from my laptop thats currently running Handbrake video encoding software with a game in the background minimized...

It's toasty because i've set the processor to run dual IDA using Throttlestop

Thats a bit warmer than i'd like for the Intel Burn Test... but since you're not having an external cooling it's quite normal I guess...

Laptops should be aiming for high 70s for the IBT... you should get a cooling pad if you intend to stress the laptop out...

No problem, it's just that laptops are generally not built to be under heavy loads 100% of the time like desktops, I was just offering some advice to help prolong your laptop's life

It's an innate design flaw in most laptops, except for gaming laptops

IBT is the heaviest software you can use in terms of CPU load, and if your laptop can handle it and remain stable, it passes the test!
