Yup. You need a new battery.

The S4 is an older device and the batteries certainly don't last forever.

The good news is that you can pick up a new battery relatively cheaply on eBay or Amazon.

Make sure also to check under settings...battery to see what apps might be eating your battery. Facebook has been known to be a battery hog. There are alternatives like Metal if that's happening to you.
