Recently the car (bought used) wont start occasionally, all dash icons light up

(2007 Volkswagen Beetle)
in Franklin, NC on March 15, 2014
radio panel shows SAFE or 1000. Car will start with a jump and be OK for a week or 2 then it happens again. Battery is losing juice according to the tester.
Was allegedly changed in 2011. Time for a new battery or what?
Once it's jumped, it's fine, I just have to reset the clock, but trip milage indicator goes back to zero. I've only had the car for 6 months, so I'm really hoping it's nother serious.

Have the charging system, and battery tested. Could also need to do a parasitic draw test.
