Battery Level Jumps Up and down

Its strange but my battery goes from 16% to 23% (Or etc% To etc%) in one minute, once when I get down to about 10% I have to hurry and find my charger because that is no longer accurate.. Does this mean my battery wearing out? The battery and the computer is one year old.
