Default Time for a new battery?

I've had my phone plugged in for 2 hours and off, and its only charged to 26% after being rebooted. Its still on the charger as I'm typing this out and the battery life is dropping steadily instead of rising. The battery has been hot for 2 days now even when off the charger. Currently I'm getting a temp reading of 40C. I seem to go from 100% to 70% in less than 30 minutes with the phone just sitting on my desk. Could it finally be time for a new battery?
