Thinkpad P51s won't charge to 100%

I got a thinkpad p51s last year. And those few days, I found the battery can not recharge to 100%, it always stop at 96%. What happend to the battery? 96% looks uncomfortable. I want it to recharge to 100%. What should I do? Hope someone can give me some idea. Thanks!

The battery management software for the software stops charging around 95-96% in order maximize the life of the battery.  This can be changed in the settings to 100%, but you may need to replace the battery sooner as a result.
