Welcome to the community.
As per your concern battery is not charging properly. I would suggest you to please update the Power Manager software from the below mentioned web link.
After that please perform the Gauge Reset, to do so:
1.Open Lenovo Energy Management
2.Click on the bottom gear icon between i and ?.
3.Under Battery Health, Click on Start for Battery Gauge Reset.
4.That should refresh the gauge and let the system finish through the cycle.
5. Please do not close the system while performing, it will take more time to complete it.
