I bought my MacBook three days ago but CoconutBattery says it's 7 weeks old. The original battery capacity is 5200 mAh and the capacity now is only 4976 mAh. It's about 95% percent of it's original charge. Is this normal for a MacBook that's only three days old?

I believe CoconutBattery is telling you that your Macbook battery is 7 weeks old because that was the date of manufacture of the battery. It appears that it took about 6-7 weeks for the battery to get to you. Fully charge and discharge your battery a few times, most likely the percent will increase.
