if its not one thing... it's another

SO pretty sure the battery is dying/Dead. Twice now I have gone to the car and it wont turn over; once jump started runs fine. However, tonight leaving one of my destinations I had to be jumped again. The car had ran for a solid 20 minutes prior to being shut off, and only sat for about an hour. Anyone have an idea on battery life expectancy? I noticed a sight glass on the battery, is that some sort of indicator?
Also, when hooking the car to the trickle charger I saw this, coming out of the wire that runs to the positive terminal....

anyone know what it is and why it's unplugged?
