That's pretty terrible even if it's not conditioned yet. Especially because it sounds like you have only light use. You may want to take it back and replace the battery. Either that or you're in an area with terrible signal.

Did you let the battery completely drain and then charge to 100% after you bought your phone?

Sounds like a bad battery then. Happened to me on another phone. I just asked for a new battery and they gave it to me no problem.

I don't even have full bars and I get a minimum of 12 hours on pretty semi heavy use. I don't use wifi and I get at least 3-3.5 hours of screen on time.

Basically you shouldn't have to worry about battery life if your only using the phone "normally".....
