"battery discharging when stopped"

Got this message this a.m. after not driving for 3 days. When I got to work 22 miles later and turned car off its said recharge battery. Everything is working fine, no clock issues or any other issues yet.

Tickle charging now, will see what happens. I left car for two weeks last month
and came back no issues.

Car battery is original and is 5 years old so probably due.

Secret Menu says voltage while driving was 14.5-14.7 so I think the alternator is working
