Battery dies...

So five times now, I have received a warning that "Battery is discharging while stopped". I guess that it means something is draining the battery? My car came with a trickle charger so each time I plugged it for the night. It works for a while and then, the warning comes back within a day or so.
I drive about 50-60 km daily to go to work, which I assume is enough to keep the system charged. I didn't leave anything on.
Talked to service and the car is going in next week. They seem to think that it is related to the cold spell we have been having, but it all started when the weather was really warm last week. Hopefully, it's only a bad battery.

Has anyone experienced anything similar? Not something I would expect from a brand new car with barely 2K on the odometer.
Thanks
