Lenovo Yoga C930 turns off unless plugged in, red charger light blinking rapidly

Hello! Yesterday my laptop was working just fine, and today when the battery was about to die I plugged it in. After it was done charging I unplugged it, but then the whole laptop shut down (despite the battery being on 100%). I tried turning it back on, no luck, gave it a couple of minutes and tried again still to no effect. I plugged in the charger again and only then did the laptop switch on, and I now notice the light where the cable is blinks super fast and is red. If i unplug it, it shuts down again.

I read that I might need to change the battery, but the laptop is pretty much brand new - maybe a little over half a year old. I've also been told that the warranty might not cover issues like this, but I couldn't find anything in the actual booklet, so... is that really the case?
