This is probably because a certain percentage of the filesystem is
reserved for root. This means that when the filesystem appears "full"
to a regular user, root can still write to the disk. When this
happens the disk shows being over 100% capacity.
The reason for this is, if the root filesystem is full this can
prevent users from logging in. Reserving a portion of the filesystem
for root allows the superuser to log in to correct the problem.
So, no, nothing is wrong.
