For the past few weeks my computer is acting strange.  It has always been that when the power cord is plugged into it, it automatically charges the battery until it reaches 100%.  Now even when the power cord is plugged in, the icon at the bottom of the screen will say whatever percent is available and "plugged in, not charging".  Why is this happening out of nowhere?  Why is it not automatically charging while it's plugged in like it used to?

It sounds like something is no longer functioning. It might be the battery or it might be the charging circuit, it could also be the adapter. I would try using a different, compatible power adapter to see if that makes a difference. If not, then I would try a different battery. If neither of those solves the problem then I'd be looking for a responsible technician to check out the components in the case.

Does it run Ok on the power cord with the battery removed, if it does the charger is fine the battery is faulty.

Take out the battery and login to Windows OS and reconnect the battery this trick works if problem is with Windows OS.
