Also, I checked the usage in the settings.
Usage: 1 hour 13 minutes
Standby: 1 hour 13 minutes
Were you using the phone the entire time that you took it off the charger? Your usage time should not be the same as your standby time if the phone was idle/sleep.

I haven't used it. I let it sit on the couch. Then after a hour I check the usage in the setting to see if it's ok or if it had the same problem. Still says the same usage as the stand by. I had that problem before but the next time I charge the phone, it was ok. Now it always has the same usage and stand by. Would AT&T replace my phone? I got this phone on March 11, 2011. This phone is little over a month.
would suggest the genius bar first, Apple handles all the warranty issues on the iphone not att.

First, the meter itself isn't horribly accurate, so you can assume the battery is +/- a couple % from the reading at any given time.
Second, the discharge rate while in standby should be 1/3% per hour on the 3GS to get that 300 hour standby rating:
I'd take it to the apple store. You can try to do a restore from iTunes, and then if that doesn't work a factory reset, to clear everything out (WARNING - FACTORY RESET will delete everything, you'll need to re-set up the phone, re-import data, etc - don't do it unless you're sure you've got your data backed up elsewhere) to see if you can get rid of whatever is running and causing battery drain.
You don't happen to have GPS on do you? You'd have the little GPS pointer thingie showing on the status bar all the time?
