5DsR battery drains over time. Is this normal?

Hello, all. I’m sort of in a photography hiatus right now while I wait for the weather in Miami to cool a bit so my new 5DsR sits on a shelf for a bit between uses and I’ve noticed that it’s battery seems to discharge very slowly. When I pick it up after a week or two of non-use, the battery will show 50% charge when I know it was fully charge before.

Is this normal behavior in this model? I’ve had Canons since 2002 and have never experienced a trickle discharge like this before. It’s not horrible, especially since I have a spare but was wondering if perhaps there is something I need to do. 
Thanks in advance.
