Problem with a laptop battery

Hi, my pc is hp pavilion dv5-1135ee which i bought about 15 months ago.
A couple of days ago i realized a problem with my battery, it doesn't pass 76% while still showing charging (charging forever). When i unplug the charger, the battery last for about an hour or less and shuts down without a warning (like a power cut) without reaching 10% (when i used to get a warning msg). So is it my battery or what's wrong?
Thanks for reading.
